Lope de Aguirre, ruthless Spanish explorer and conquistador who was looking for the mythical El Dorado, revolted against the Spanish Crown. Instead of presenting the traditional vision of Aguirre as a cruel madman, Balkan views Lope de Aguirre as the first American revolutionary. It’s a thought-provoking interpretation, that’s for sure.
