Film Details

Cleveland Cult Film Festival 4


Mexico, Spain, United States | 1987 | Alex Cox


This critical and box office disaster from the director of Repo Man and Sid and Nancy now has many fans. It tells the incredible but little-known true story of William Walker (Ed Harris), an American adventurer who invaded Nicaragua with a mercenary army in the 1850s and set himself up as the country’s president—all to secure an overland shipping route between the Atlantic and the Pacific for his rich sponsor, Cornelius Vanderbilt (Peter Boyle). With Marlee Matlin. Screenplay by Rudy Wurlitzer; music by Joe Strummer.

35mm. 94 min.
