Fando y Lis Cancelled


Alejandro Jodorowsky’s extensive career in avant-garde theatre in the 1940s and 1950s (he was also a puppeteer, circus clown and mime) was mirrored in his films, producing violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation.

Jodorowsky’s first feature-length film Fando y Lis was shot on high contrast black and white film and caused quite a stir, telling the story of Fando and his paraplegic sweetheart Lis as they embark on a mystical journey through a series of surreal scenarios to find the enchanted city of Tar. When the film premièred at the 1968 Acapulco Film Festival, a full-scale riot broke out and the film was later banned in Mexico.
