Fando y Lis
The film follows Fando and his paraplegic girlfriend Lis through a barren, post-apocalyptic wasteland in search of the mythical city of Tar, where legend has it all wishes come true. The film is divided into four “acts”:
Fando y Lis is Alejandro Jodorowsky’s first feature length film. The movie is loosely based on a play written by Fernando Arrabal, who was working with Alejandro Jodorowsky on performance art at the time. The film was done in black and white on the weekends with a small budget.

Girl on a motorcycle
An emerging cult classic that was hard to find until its recent release on video, GIRL ON A MOTORCYCLE is beautiful in its simplicity. Marianne Faithfull’s character serves as a wish-fulfilment fantasy for both men and women, she’s a figure of liberation and freedom who bucks social conventions to follow her heart. The film was a labor of love for veteran Hollywood cinematographer Jack Cardiff, and captures the late 1960’s zeitgeist that is nowadays parodied in films like “Austin Powers.” But one need only compare the opening sequence of this film to the beginning of David Lynch’s “Lost Highway” to see the influence this film still has thirty years later.
