Llanito

Danny Lyon
Bleak Beauty Video

Llanito, 1971, New Mexico, b&w, 54 minutes produced by Danny Seymour’s Sensory Overload, a realistic onslaught — including Willie Jaramillo as a boy of 12 Lyon’s first film in New Mexico.

“Llanito deals with people who operate on the fringe of society: Indians, Chicanos, and a group of retarded Anglos. Their collective martyrdom to American society is symbolized by the summary of Christ’s passion as recounted by one of the retarded boys, unquestionably of of the most bizarre religious testaments ever recorded.”
Pamela Allara, Pictures From Film/Films from Pictures, 1984
