In the 1970s, his legendary films EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN redefined movies as both art and entertainment while changing the face of cinema forever. And in 1989, visionary writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky returned with his modern masterpiece. It is the story of a young circus performer, the crime of passion that shatters his soul, and the macabre journey back to the world of his armless mother, deaf-mute lover, and murder. It is an odyssey of ecstasy and anguish, belief and blasphemy, beauty and madness. It is unlike any movie you have ever seen before; or ever will. Axel Jodorowsky, Blanca Guerra and Guy Stockwell star in this epic of surreal genius.

“A movie like none other I have seen before...a film in which the inner chambers of the soul are laid bare.” —Roger Ebert

“One of the great hallucinatory experiences in cinema, a visually intoxicating horror trip. A perfect introduction for those eager to travel down more rarely explored routes of international film.” —Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital
