    THE HOLY MOUNTAIN

    Alejandro Jodorowsky Mexico, 1973

    Financed by John and Yoko (!), The Holy Mountain is an incendiary, surrealist, sacrilegious satire that outraged Cannes in 1973. Infused with tarot imagery, alchemical mysticism, and countercultural freakery, it’s a lucid dream that lodges itself directly in the subconscious—and there it stays.

    EL TOPO

    Alejandro Jodorowsky Mexico, 1970

    The quintessential “acid western,” Jodorowsky’s notorious underground film takes a gonzo odyssey into the heady realms of genre, myth and spirituality, fusing Eastern and Western ideas in the quest for enlightenment. A controversially unhinged cowboy freak-out from the mad prophet of radical cinema.

    THE DANCE OF REALITY

    Alejandro Jodorowsky France, 2013

    After 23 years away, Alejandro Jodorowsky returned to filmmaking with this Quinzaine premiere—an utterly personal, deeply idiosyncratic, magical realist wartime musical. Spanning generations, this is truly a family affair: a surreal journey into autobiography.

    FANDO AND LIS

    Alejandro Jodorowsky Mexico, 1968

    Chile’s resident surrealist broke all of cinema’s rules with his provocative debut. Somewhere between a dystopian, desert enlightenment quest and a stoned 1960s art happening—all shot in sublime high-contrast B&W—the cult classic was banned in Mexico, causing a literal riot on its 1968 premiere.

    ENDLESS POETRY

    Alejandro Jodorowsky Chile, 2016

    A cornucopia of ambitiously grotesque and sublime imagery invades Jodorowsky’s second autobiographical film. Covering the period in which the young man leaves home in search of bohemian self-expression, this Felliniesque escapade explores the mythic struggles of the artist to find their voice.
