"...very unusual and uniquely compelling..." - The New York Film Festival
Cohen Film Collection introduces this rarely seen film by director Albert Lewin (PANDORA AND THE FLYING DUTCHMAN). IDOL tells the story of an archaeologist who uncovers relics of an ancient Mayan human sacrifice. A local girl soon becomes possessed by the spirit of the Jaguar God upset by the excavation…or does she? Lewin takes full advantage of the striking Mexican locations.
