97 mins – Mexico 1968 – Subtitles – Dir. Alejandro Jodorowsky
Starring: Tamara Garina, Sergio Kleiner and Diana Mariscal
Fando and his paraplegic sweetheart Lis embark on a mystical journey through a series of surreal scenarios to find the enchanted city of Tar. On the way, they journey through urban desolation, scorched deserts and towering mountains, whilst encountering a series of terrifying and sometimes moving characters.
Boasting some of his most disturbing images, Jodorowsky’s stunning feature-length debut, Fando y Lis, is an extraordinarily ambitious and intense adaptation of a controversial play by Fernando Arrabal. A bizarre tale of corrupted innocence and tortured love rendered in searing, high-contrast black and white, Fando y Lis incited a full-scale riot when it was first screened at the 1968 Acapulco film festival.
