Fando Y Lis


Please note, this film is only available for purchase in the United States, Canada and Mexico. 

Surrealist filmmaker, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s unique career began with this bizarre tale of corrupted innocence, sadomasochistic love and unattainable paradise. Jodorowsky’s 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. Stunning 4K restoration using the original 35mm elements, with “La Cravate” and new extras.
