The Holy Mountain
Please note, this event has expired.
An astonishingly rich and beautiful psychedelic/alchemical fable from writer-director-star-wizard Alejandro Jodorowsky. The imagery will transfix and transport you. Presented in 35mm.
Alchemy in a white room, limbless drifters, dwarfs, toads as Aztecs and Conquistadors waging a blood war – THE HOLY MOUNTAIN is the surreal ramblings of the mind flayed open. Eschewing plot for sacrilege and alchemy, it unfurls as a dizzying array of kaleidoscopic musings on imperial and colonial excess, oracles, tarot and spirituality. A messianic man takes a hallucinogenic trek to the outer edges of sanity and the cosmos in this alchemical fable. Alejandro Jodorowsky’s THE HOLY MOUNTAIN
