A mysterious man (played by Jodorowsky) rides through the desert on a mission of vengeance and spiritual rebirth in this one-of-a-kind cult Western filled with surrealistic digressions. References to philosophy and religion abound, along with phallic symbols, characters with physical deformities, and more outrageous imagery! In Spanish with English subtitles.
FANDO AND LIS
1968, Cannon Film Distributors, 93 min, Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s debut feature is a stylish and playful tale of a doomed young couple. Here the director’s usual preoccupations are wed to a conventional love story, and as a result FANDO AND LIS offers a more lighthearted draw than much of his later work. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Both films in Spanish with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
