Production wraps on a Hollywood western in a Peruvian village but stuntman Kansas remains, attempting to find redemption in isolation and the arms of a former sex worker. Meanwhile, local Native Americans have taken over the abandoned set and are staging a ritualistic re-enactment of the film.
Dennis Hopper’s misunderstood countercultural masterpiece almost ruined his career: and that’s not the half of it! A drug-fueled production, stellar cast (Peter Fonda! Sam Fuller! Kris Kristofferson!) and stunning Peruvian setting turn this wild artistic feat into unforgettable cinema.
