Arrow Video is proud to present three cinematic masterpieces from legendary Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky – EL TOPO, THE HOLY MOUNTAIN and FANDO Y LIS. Newly restored in 4K from the original negatives and back on the big screen for a limited time. 

 

 

 

“His example is a blazing beacon to anyone aspiring to work in the medium of cinema” Alan Moore (Writer, Watchmen)

 

The ultimate arthouse auteur, the celebrated director, beloved by the likes of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Dennis Hopper and David Lynch, has been an influence on everything from Alien, The Exorcist, the imagery of Marilyn Manson, and even the songs of Noel Gallagher, Marina Abramovic’ and Kanye West. A unique, extraordinary figure in the cinematic landscape, this is a rare chance for audiences to see three of his films in all their breathtaking, visionary glory.

Jodorowsky, with his talented troupe of actors, including his son Brontis Jodorowsky (star of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald), and top-flight crew, including Gonzalo Gavira (the sound technician who won an Oscar for The Exorcist) and Marcelino Pachecho (who went on to do special effects for Apocalypto), set the benchmark for extraordinary, ground-breaking and boundary-pushing cinema.
