Midnight Movie Circus Season - Santa Sangre

Fri 15 July 2011 // 22:00

(Fri 15th / 10pm / FREE )
(Alejandro Jodorowsky / Mexico/Italy / 1989 / Certificate 18)

The ultimate circus grotesque psychedelic cinema, from the fiendish imagination of cult director of 'Holy Mountain' and 'El Topo', the mystical Jodorowsky.
'Santa Sangre' stars Jodorowsky's son Axel as Fenix, a child of the circus and all its raw basest desires and jealousies backstage. The film is essentially a love story, and a story of a child's shattered mind as he grows to manhood. We shift in time to and from the adult life of Fenix in an asylum and his circus childhood, showing the ghosts that continue to haunt his mind.

'Santa Sangre' is colourful, stylish, ghoulish and circo-fabulous.

Film on at 11pm, with drinks and deranged carnival music in the bar beforehand.
