Part of the ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY RETRO!
Co-presented by Midnites for Maniacs & Spoke Art!

Jodorowsky’s legendary, notorious cult hit essentially created the genre of the midnight movie — a spectacle so stunning and bizarre that normal hours couldn’t contain it. Incorporating influences from tarot to the Bible to surrealism into a mind.blowing western, Jodorowsky cast himself as the leather-clad gunman, El Topo (‘the mole’), who wanders through a desert strewn with mystical symbols on an unnamed quest, leaving blood and carnage in his wake. Declared a masterpiece by John Lennon himself, EL TOPO tops even the most outrageous aesthetic experiments of its radical era and remains unmatched in its provocations and strange beauty. Present on a gorgeous new 35mm, restored in collaboration with the director.

Written & directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. With Alejandro Jodorowsky, Brontis Jodorowsky, José Legarreta and scores of others. 1970. 35mm. 124 mins.
