Following on from his success from Easy Rider, Dennis Hopper directs and stars in this hallucinatory meditation on Hollywood,economic exploitation and pop music. The film follows a Hollywood movie crew in the midst of making a western in a remote Peruvian village. When production wraps, Hopper, as the baleful stuntman Kansas, remains, attempting to find redemption in the isolation of Peru and the arms of a former prostitute.
Meanwhile, the locals have taken over the abandoned set and begun to stage a ritualistic re-enactment of the production – with Kansas as their sacrificial lamb. Screening from a new digital restoration.
