New 4K restoration provided by Severin Films

A former circus artist escapes from a mental hospital to rejoin his armless mother – the leader of a stranger religious cult – and is forced to enact brutal murders in her name as he becomes ”her arms”.

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. Presented for the first time in its 4K restoration in Canada, Santa Sangre continues to enrapture both Jodorowsky newbies and dedicated fans like 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.

A movie like non other I have seen before…a film in which the inner chambers of the soul are laid bare. – Roger Ebert
