“A movie like none other I have seen before...a film in which the inner chambers of the soul are laid bare.” -- Roger Ebert
Fifteen years after Alejandro Jodorowsky’s EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN unlocked our collective third eye, the legendary provocateur made his ‘80s comeback with this staggering odyssey of ecstasy, anguish, belief, blasphemy, beauty and madness. SANTA SANGRE continues to enrapture both Jodorowsky newbies and dedicated fans alike with its tale of a young circus performer, the crime of passion that shatters his soul, and a macabre journey back to the world of his armless mother. SANTA SANGRE is perfect for primetime one-offs, late-nite genre slots or as an anchor in your Jodorowsky revival series.
A former circus artist escapes from a mental hospital to rejoin his armless mother - the leader of a strange religious cult - and is forced to enact brutal murders in her name as he becomes "her arms". Watch the Trailer!
