3 Disc Deluxe Box Set features Car Cemetery, The Emperor of Peru, Farewell, Babylon!, Borges, A Life in Poetry, Arrabal, Panik Cineast. Limited numbered Edition of 2000 copies.

Disc 1
Car Cemetery (Le Cimitiére des Voitures) 1983
Combining punk rock and post-apocalyptic mayhem, Arrabal’s outrageous adaptation of his infamous 1958 stage play is a gallows-humor romp in a wretched dystopia. A raucous and absurd retelling of the Christ story with thugs, murderers, pimps and punks. Car Cemetery is one of Fernando Arrabal’s most rare and wanted films.

Disc 2
The Emperor of Peru (L’Empereur du Pérou) 1982
A charming and phantasmagoric children’s film, The Emperor of Peru stars Mickey Rooney. Rarely seen outside of a brief theatrical run and a long out-of-print videocassette release, The Emperor of Peru returns to thrill families and art film buffs alike.

Disc 3
Farewell, Babylon! (Adieu, Babylon!) 1992
Arrabal’s 6th film is based on his 1969 novel of the same title and features Leila Fischer and Spike Lee.

Borges, A Life in Poetry (Jorge Luis Borges, Una vida de Poesia) 1998
A documentary film on one of Arrabal’s greatest influences, the Brazilian writer Jorge Luis Borges, featuring the last interview before his death.

Arrabal, Panik Cineast (Arrabal Cinéaste Panique) 2007
A documentary that captures the adventurous spirit and outrageous creations of Europe’s most infamous surrealist, Fernando Arrabal. Featuring Alejandro Jodorowsky.
