    Press release!

    Prior to the August 7th premiere, there will be a Jodorowsky retrospective beginning  August 1 exclusively at Alamo On Demand, featuring 4K restorations of the surrealist filmmaker’s cult classics  Fando y Lis, El Topo  and  The Holy Mountain, as well as the more recent  The Dance Of Reality  and  Endless Poetry.  

    A virtual master class in Psychomagic with Jodorowsky is also planned for August 8 on Alamo on Demand.

    Directed by: Alejandro Jodorowsky
    Cinematography by: Pascale Montandon Jodorowsky

    Synopsis:

    Alejandro Jodorowsky’s new documentary Psychomagic, A Healing Art is an intimate exploration of the visionary director’s theory of trauma therapy. His unique concept of healing uses performance art as a vehicle to counter deep, debilitating psychic suffering with literal ‘acts of confrontation’ in real world applications.

    Drawing from a life-long study of philosophy, psychology, ethnology, and world religions, from Freud to shamans, from Kabbalah to Gurdjieff, and everything in between, Jodorowsky’s films have dealt with the individual quest for redemption and enlightenment, the protagonist facing bizarre and provocative challenges that lead to personal catharsis.

    The film his explores the director’s therapeutic work of Psychomagic using real life subjects in real world situations. Jodorowsky explains and demonstrates Psychomagic’s principles, how it is practiced, and how it is applied. The Maestro works directly with suffering people who are eager to face, resolve, and transcend their personal dilemmas through the use of this radical and transformative mode of performance art therapy.

    Intercut with scenes from his most famous films, it parallels and explains his intent and vision present from the start of his career, giving new perspective and meaning to his seminal works, while simultaneously breaking the wall between fictional and real.

    I'm tentatively looking forward to it; I never thought we'd get a new Jodo film, much less three, so even though its not a narrative film, I'll gladly watch it when my box set arrives.
    I really wish he'd have made a third autobiographical picture that covered El Topo and Holy Mountain.
