Fando Y Lis

Alejandro Jodorowsky is an artist in all facets of the word: actor, director, playwright, orator, comic author, tarot I forgetting something? I just had the pleasure to watch his first film, "Fando Y Lis", via Netflix. As with many of his films, there is a mystique to "Fando Y Lis". Back in 1967 when the film debuted at a film festival in Mexico, the audience was so upset with the film that a riot broke out in the midst of the showing. The film is not too disturbing by today's standards. But it is filled with poignant commentary on life and humanity. The version I saw also happened to have an inciteful documentary and interview with Jodorowsky. Check out the intro to "Fando Y Lis" and a clip of the interview below.
