El Topo <p>One Night Only! Friday, July 7th at 10pm <br />on 35mm film!</p> <p>A bizarre, ultra-violent, allegorical Western, El Topo is set in two halves that have widely been compared to the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. In the first half, Jodorowsky plays a violent, black-clad gunfighter who, accompanied by his naked son, sets off on a murderous mission to challenge four Zen masters of gunfighting, and learns from each of them a Great Lesson before they die. In the second half, El Topo sets out to find personal redemption, secluding himself in a subterranean community to learn the ways of peace, but unfortunately death is never far away. First released as an underground film, it was thanks to John Lennon that the film was acquired by Allen Klein of ABKCO, who bought the rights to El Topo and then financed Alejandro Jodorowsky's next film The Holy Mountain.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Jodorowsky <p>Alejandro Jodorowsky is either a genius or a madman, or probably both. He was dubbed "the father of the midnight movie" in 1970 with his film El Topo, attracting the admiration of John Lennon and Dennis Hopper. After creating the psychosexual/theological/gender-bending/gnostic masterpiece The Holy Mountain in 1973 he (and the movies) disappeared for many years. The films were passed around on dubbed and re-dubbed video tapes throughout the 1980s and the underground was ready to receive Santa Sangre with open arms (or no arms!) in 1989. It shocked and horrified people all over again with circus freaks and occult pop culture. Many many years later, in 2013, he created The Dance of Reality - a metaphoric autobiography of his childhood, beautifully filmed in his home town of Tocopilla, Chile. It's as telling as it is confusing, as we try to figure out what is really in his past and what is in his imagination. Either way, it includes amputees, little people and a wide array of animals and freaks, as in his earlier films. These showings will lead to the release of his new film Endless Poetry, which is the next chapter of his colorful and bizarre self-referencing portrayals. Viva Jodorowsky!</p> <p>[Suggested prerequisite: Jodorowsky's Dune - A truly fascinating documentary from 2013 about him never making a film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune in the 1970s! A vivid peek into the brilliant mind and lofty imagination of the filmmaker.]</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

J'adore Ciné Club: Tomboy <p><span>A French family with two daughters, 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne, moves to a new neighborhood during the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and passes herself off as Michael. Filmmaker Céline Sciamma brings a light and charming touch to this drama of childhood gender confusion. Zoe Heran as Laure/Michael and Malonn Levanna as Jeanne are nothing less than brilliant. This is a relationship movie: relationships between children, and the even more complicated one between one's heart and body.</span></p> America/North_Dakota/Center

J'adore Ciné Club: Jour de fete <p>In his enchanting debut feature, Jacques Tati stars as a fussbudget of a postman who is thrown for a loop when a traveling fair comes to his village.
