Frida After Dark Kicks Off With El Topo This Weekend!

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

The Wild West is about to get really, really weird with El Topo, a cult midnight movie by Alejandro Jodorowsky!

Starring Jodorowsky as the titular gunfighter, the film sees El Topo set out on a quest to defeat four sharp-shooting rivals. At the same time, the cowboy tries to navigate a bizarre path to allegorical self-awareness and resurrection. Joining him on this strange journey is his son, played by Jodorowsky’s real-life son Brontis.

A mix of classic Americana and avant-garde European sensibilities, El Topo is easily the most controversial Western head-trip ever made.

El Topo screens starting Friday, March 3rd.
Friday, Mar 3 – 11pm
Saturday, Mar 4 – 11pm
