THE SILENCE OF THE PRINCESS Captures The Tragic Life Of FANDO Y LIS Star Diana Mariscal

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Scarcely remembered now Diana Mariscal seems a sort of proof of the saying that those whose light burns brightest burns shortest. The Mexican performer is best known today as the star of Alejandro Jodorowsky's Fando Y Lis - that being one of only six films the actress and singer appeared in - but she dropped out of the limelight shortly thereafter, a victim of severe depression that at the time was far more likely to be swept under the rug than dealt with.

Struck by a car and killed earlier this month at the age of 62, Mariscal comes back into the spotlight now as the subject of El Silencio De La Princesa (The Silence Of The Princess), a documentary feature looking into her life, career and illness from director Manuel Cañibe. Fans of Jodorowsky will obviously want to pay particular attention as her work with the director occupies a significant role in the film but the clip released promises something with far more broad ranging appeal. Take a look below.

    I don´t think I ever heard about her before, nice looking trailer, hoping I get the chance to see this one, thanks Mr Brown.
