Image from the film Saragossa Manuscript.
The Saragossa Manuscript is a brilliant adaptation of one of the greatest works of world literature. Set in 1739, Alphonse van Worden crosses the wild range of the Sierra Morena, a land said to be inhabited only by demons, evil spirits, and invisible hands that push travelers into chasms. Although he refuses to listen to those tales, his journey will be a sequence of supernatural and frightful events. But maybe they’re only illusions? The film was a favorite of Jerry Garcia and Luis Buñuel. (2K DCP presentation)
