CRAZY GOOD: AN ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY TRIBUTE
Series compiled by Grant Moninger. Program notes by Jim Hemphill, program title by Beth Hanna.

When New York filmmaker Jonas Mekas programmed an eccentric Western called EL TOPO in a 1970 avant-garde film festival, an original new voice in international cinema was introduced. A unique blend of mysticism, violence and heavily symbolic images, EL TOPO captivated the counterculture and announced its Chilean-born director, Alejandro Jodorowsky, as a filmmaker of immense talent and vision. More ambitious and audacious epics followed - THE HOLY MOUNTAIN and SANTA SANGRE not only delivered on the promise of Jodorowsky's breakthrough, they exceeded all the high expectations EL TOPO generated. These films, as well as Jodorowsky's charming and little-seen debut film FANDO AND LIS, will be screened at the Egyptian in all their surrealistic big-screen splendor.

We are thrilled to welcome Alejandro Jodorowsky to the Egyptian Theatre.
