New Digital Restoration! Filmed in Cuba in 1958, “Santo Contra Cerebro del Mal” is the first film starring El Santo (Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta), the most famous and iconic of all Mexican luchadores. In this film, the silver-masked hero foils the plot of a mad scientist to create a zombie army by zapping his innocent victims with electric shocks. “Cerebro del Mal” sparked a long series of films – 52 in all – in which El Santo fights supernatural creatures, evil scientists, and various criminals and secret agents.

Filmmaker/archivist, and granddaughter of the film’s producer Jorge Garcia Besné, Viviana Garcia Besné IN PERSON for post-screening Q&A to discuss her journey to restore the film, moderated by Peter Conheim/Cinema Preservation Alliance.

Restored by Nicolas Winding Refn and Academy Film Archive through Cinema Preservation Alliance and Permanencia Voluntaria.

This is a benefit screening for the Mexican Archive Permanencia Voluntaria.

Make it a double feature and see PERDIDA (LOST) at 4:30pm too! General Admission tickets for either are $12. Limited amount of tickets for both for $15 available.

About PERDIDA:
In the history of Mexican cinema, the Calderón family is known for building grand movie palaces and producing outrageous genre films disdained by critics yet loved by the masses. Filmmaker Viviana García Besné investigates their legacy from the inside as the grandniece of mogul José Luis Calderón. Her journey uncovers a hidden history full of curvy actresses, masked wrestlers, human robots and Aztec mummies – all driven by the most shameless commercial impulses.
