Sergio Kleiner, Diana Mariscal
Part of the Alejandro Jodorowsky Season
Jodorowsky’s stunning feature-length directorial debut follows two young lovers as they go in search of a mystical city known as Tar. It is said that on arrival, they will know eternity and all their wildest wishes will come true. Navigating urban desolation, scorched deserts and towering mountains along the way, Fando and the partially paralysed Lis face disturbing characters and witness odd encounters that slowly drive them mad. Ambitious, intense and open to varying interpretations, this surreal film causeda riot upon its premier at the Acapulco Film Festival back in 1968. Film4 said the film ‘leaves Fellini and Buñuel spluttering in its dust’.
