Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ‘El Topo’ at El Museo del Barrio

March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$$$

Jodorowsky’s legendary, notorious cult hit essentially created the genre of the midnight movie — a spectacle so stunning and bizarre that normal hours couldn’t contain it. Incorporating influences from tarot to the Bible to surrealism into a mind-blowing western, Jodorowsky cast himself as the leather-clad gunman, El Topo (‘the mole’), who wanders through a desert strewn with mystical symbols on an unnamed quest, leaving blood and carnage in his wake. Declared a masterpiece by John Lennon himself, EL TOPO tops even the most outrageous aesthetic experiments of its radical era and remains unmatched in its provocations and strange beauty.

1970 | 124 Minutes | In partnership with ABKCO.

Immediately after, there will be Q&A with artist Alejandro Jodorowsky. Ticket info coming soon! 

The film screening is part of El Museo del Barrio’s programming as it relates to the exhibition JODOROWSKY, on view February 28 – May 12, 2019.
