The film received limited theatrical distribution, putting Jodorowsky back on the cultural map despite its mixed critical reviews. Santa Sangre was a surrealist film with a plot similar to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.

It featured a protagonist who, as a child, saw his mother lose both her arms, and as an adult let his xabaret arms act as hers, and so was forced to commit murders at her whim. Several of Jodorowsky’s sons were recruited as actors. He followed in with a very different film, The Rainbow Thief.

According to festival director Bryan Wendorf, it was an open question of whether CUFF would be allowed to show both films, or whether the police would show up and shut the festival down. Notably, Fando y Lis and La cravate were extensively digitally restored and remastered in London during latethus providing the perfect complement to the quality restoration work undertaken on El Topo and The Holy Mountain in the States by Abkco, and ensuring that the presentation of Fando jodlrowsky Lis is a significant improvement over the Fantoma DVD edition.
