Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s first full-length film, Fando Y Lis, was created from hazy memories of the controversial Fernando Arrabal play he staged in Paris; his sublime freak-out follows impotent Fando (Sergio Kleiner) and his paraplegic sweetheart Lis (Diana Mariscal) searching for the enchanted city of Tar where spiritual ecstasy resides. The astonishing road trip takes them through urban rubble, scalding deserts, treacherous mountains, their own pasts and close encounters of the weirdest kind in Alejandro Jodorowsky’s seminal, signature work of startling provocation and incendiary art. After premiering in 1967 in Acapulco, the film caused an uproar in the avant-garde community and was subsequently banned in Mexico.
