Given carte blanche by Universal Pictures following the success of Easy Rider, Dennis Hopper took the production for his next movie (as well as an entourage including the likes of Kris Kristofferson and Sam Fuller) to faraway Peru. There he shot hours and hours of footage…for a film about a Hollywood crew on location in Peru, working on a bloated Western. Now considered the epitome of a film maudit (the cursed shoot was followed by the alcohol- and drug-addled Hopper’s failure to deliver an edit on time), the project captured the Critics Prize at the Venice Film Festival before bombing at the box office and essentially sending Hopper into exile from Hollywood until the 1980s. One of the great curios in American film history. (108 mins., 4K DCP)
The film is preceded by Bill Morrison’s short The Letter, a story of intertwining love triangles comprised entirely of deteriorated silent film footage. Morrison is a current Wexner Center Artist Residency Award recipient in film/video. (13 mins., DCP)
Please note: special event parking ($5 cash only) is available in the Ohio Union Garages.
