SoAH Film Night Series: Santa Sangre
2 November 2021 | 6pm 8pm
Battersea and Gorvy Lecture Theatre
Join us for a screening of Santa Sangre (1989) by Alejandro Jodorowsky, presented by Ben Clarke.
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".
Although arguably his most accessible and straightforward film, Alejandro Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre remains a visually mysterious, high-stylised piece of film art with profound surreal images of horror and philosophical pilgrimages.
