Introduction / Einführung: Chus Martínez. Notes – Thoughts / Notizen – Gedanken | Nº
Since , Jodorowsky has worked as a novelist, screenwriter, a poet, a playwright, an essayist, a film and theater director and producer, an actor, a film editor, a comics writer , a musician and composer, a philosopher, a puppeteer , a mime , a psychologist and psychoanalyst, a draughtsman , a painter, a sculptor, and a spiritual guru.
Best known for his avant-garde films El Topo and The Holy Mountain , he has been "venerated by cult cinema enthusiasts" for his work which "is filled with violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation".
Born to Jewish-Ukrainian parents in Chile , Jodorowsky experienced an unhappy and alienated childhood, and so immersed himself in reading and writing poetry.
Dropping out of college, he became involved in theater and in particular mime, working as a clown before founding his own theater troupe, the Teatro Mimico , in From he divided his time between Paris and Mexico City , in the former becoming a founding member of the anarchistic avant-garde Panic Movement of performance artists.
In he created his first comic strip, Anibal 5 , while in he directed his first feature film, the surrealist Fando y Lis , which caused a huge scandal in Mexico , eventually being banned.
The result was The Holy Mountain , a surrealist exploration of western esotericism. Disagreements with Klein, however, led to both The Holy Mountain and El Topo failing to gain widespread distribution, although both became classics on the underground film circuit.
After an aborted attempt at filming Frank Herbert 's science fiction novel Dune , Jodorowsky produced five more films: the family film Tusk ; the surrealist horror Santa Sangre ; the failed blockbuster The Rainbow Thief ; and the first two films in a planned five-film  autobiographical series The Dance of Reality and Endless Poetry During the same period, he wrote a series of science fiction comic books, most notably The Incal — , which has been described as having a claim to be "the best comic book" ever written,  and also The Technopriests and Metabarons.
He has also written books and regularly lectures on his own spiritual system, which he calls "psychomagic" and "psychoshamanism" and which borrows from his interests in alchemy , the tarot , Zen Buddhism and shamanism.
Jodorowsky was born in in the coastal town of Tocopilla , Chile, to parents who were Jewish immigrants from Yekaterinoslav now Dnipro , Elisavetgrad now Kropyvnytskyi and other cities of the Russian Empire now Ukraine.
His father, Jaime Jodorowsky Groismann, was a merchant,  who was largely abusive to his wife Sara Felicidad Prullansky Arcavi, and at one time accused her of flirting with a customer.
Angered, he subsequently beat and raped her, getting her pregnant, which led to the birth of Alejandro.
Because of this brutal conception, Sara both hated her husband and disliked her son, telling him that "I cannot love you" and rarely showing him tenderness.
Nonetheless he liked his local area, and was greatly unhappy when he was forced to leave it at the age of nine years old, something for which he blamed his father.
After dropping out, and having an interest in theatre and particularly mime , he took up employment as a clown in a circus and began a career as a theatre director.
Nonetheless, Jodorowsky felt that there was little for him left in Chile, and so that year he moved to Paris, France.
It was with Marceau's troupe that he went on a world tour, and wrote several routines for the group, including "The Cage" and "The Mask Maker".
After this, he returned to theatre directing, working on the music hall comeback of Maurice Chevalier in Paris. It consisted almost entirely of mime, and told the surreal story of a head-swapping merchant who helps a young man find courtship success.
Jodorowsky played the lead role. The director Jean Cocteau admired the film, and wrote an introduction for it. It was considered lost until a print of the film was discovered in In , Jodorowsky moved to Mexico, where he settled down in Mexico City.
The movement aimed to go beyond the conventional surrealist ideas by embracing absurdism. Its members refused to take themselves seriously, while laughing at those critics who did.
The following year he created a new feature film, Fando y Lis ,  loosely based on a play written by Fernando Arrabal , who was working with Jodorowsky on performance art at the time.
Fando y Lis premiered at the Acapulco Film Festival, where it instigated a riot amongst those objecting to the film's content,  and subsequently it was banned in Mexico.
Jodorowsky became a disciple of Takata and offered his own house to be turned into a zendo. Subsequently, Takata attracted other disciples around him, who spent their time in meditation and the study of koans.
In , Jodorowsky released the film El Topo , which sometimes is known in English as The Mole ,  which he had both directed and starred in.
An acid western , El Topo tells the story of a wandering Mexican bandit and gunslinger , El Topo played by Jodorowsky , who is on a search for spiritual enlightenment, taking his young son along with him.
Describing the work, he stated that "I ask of film what most North Americans ask of psychedelic drugs. The difference being that when one creates a psychedelic film, he need not create a film that shows the visions of a person who has taken a pill; rather, he needs to manufacture the pill.
It attracted the attention of rock musician and countercultural figure John Lennon , who thought very highly of it, and convinced the president of The Beatles ' company Apple Corps , Allen Klein , to distribute it in the United States.
The result was The Holy Mountain , released in The Holy Mountain was another complex, multi-part story that featured a man credited as "The Thief" and equated with Jesus Christ, a mystical alchemist played by Jodorowsky, seven powerful business people representing seven of the planets Venus and the six planets from Mars to Pluto , a religious training regimen of spiritual rebirth, and a quest to the top of a holy mountain for the secret of immortality.
During the completion of The Holy Mountain , Jodorowsky received spiritual training from Oscar Ichazo of the Arica School , who encouraged him to take LSD and guided him through the subsequent psychedelic experience.
Klein had promised this adaptation to various investors. Jodorowsky, who had discovered feminism during the filming of The Holy Mountain , refused to make the film, going so far as to leave the country to escape directing duties.
In retaliation, Allen Klein made El Topo and The Holy Mountain , to which he held the rights, completely unavailable to the public for more than 30 years.
Jodorowsky frequently decried Klein's actions in interviews. Soon after the release of The Holy Mountain , Jodorowsky gave a talk at the Teatro Julio Castillo , University of Mexico on the subject of koans despite the fact that he initially had been booked on the condition that his talk would be about cinematography , at which Ejo Takata appeared.
After the talk, Takata gave Jodorowsky his kyosaku , believing that his former student had mastered the art of understanding koans.
In December , a French consortium led by Jean-Paul Gibon purchased the film rights to Frank Herbert 's epic science fiction novel Dune and asked Jodorowsky to direct a film version.
The music would be composed by Pink Floyd and Magma. The production for the film collapsed when no film studio could be found willing to fund the movie to Jodorowsky's terms.
The aborted production was chronicled in the documentary Jodorowsky's Dune. Subsequently, the rights for filming were sold to Dino de Laurentiis , who employed the American filmmaker David Lynch to direct, creating the film Dune in The documentary does not include any original film footage of what was to be Jodorowsky's Dune but does make extraordinary [ citation needed ] claims as to the influence this unmade film had on other actual science fiction films, such as Star Wars , Alien , Terminator , Flash Gordon , and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
After the collapse of the Dune project, Jodorowsky completely changed course and, in , premiered his children's fable Tusk , shot in India.
Taken from Reginald Campbell 's novel Poo Lorn of the Elephants , the film explores the soul-mate relationship between a young British woman living in India and a highly prized elephant.
The film exhibited little of the director's outlandish visual style and was never given wide release. In , Jodorowsky divorced his wife.
The film received limited theatrical distribution, putting Jodorowsky back on the cultural map despite its mixed critical reviews.
It featured a protagonist who, as a child, saw his mother lose both her arms, and as an adult let his own arms act as hers, and so was forced to commit murders at her whim.
Several of Jodorowsky's sons were recruited as actors. He followed in with a very different film, The Rainbow Thief. That same year , Jodorowsky and his family returned to France to live.
In , Alejandro's son, Teo, died in an accident while his father was busy preparing for a trip to Mexico City to promote his new book.
Upon arriving in Mexico City, he gave a lecture at the Julio Castillo Theatre where he once again met Ejo Takata, who at this time had moved into a poor suburb of the city where he had continued to teach meditation and Zen.
Takata would die two years later, and Jodorowsky would never get to see his old friend again. Jodorowsky attended the festival and his films were shown, including El Topo and The Holy Mountain ,  which at the time had grey legal status.
According to festival director Bryan Wendorf , it was an open question of whether CUFF would be allowed to show both films, or whether the police would show up and shut the festival down.
Prior to the availability of these legitimate releases, only inferior quality, optically censored, bootleg copies of both El Topo and The Holy Mountain have been circulated on the Internet and on DVD.
In the s and early s, Jodorowsky attempted to make a sequel to El Topo , called at different times The Sons of El Topo and Abel Cain , but did not find investors for the project.
In an interview with Premiere Magazine , Jodorowsky said he intended his next project to be a gangster film called King Shot. In an interview with The Guardian newspaper in November , however, Jodorowsky revealed that he was unable to find the funds to make King Shot , and instead would be entering preparations on Sons of El Topo , for which he claimed to have signed a contract with "some Russian producers".
In August , Alejandro arrived in a town in Chile where he grew up, also the setting of his autobiography The Dance of Reality , to promote an autobiographical film based upon his book.
He attended and spoke about his work and life. Alejandro's son and co-star in the film, Brontis, claimed the film was to be finished by March , and that the film was "very different than the other films he made".
In , Jodorowsky began a new film entitled Endless Poetry , the sequel to his last "auto-biopic", The Dance of Reality. His Paris-based production company, Satori Films, launched two successful crowdfunding campaigns to finance the film.
The Indiegogo campaign has been left open indefinitely, receiving donations from fans and movie-goers in support of the independent production.
Leandro Taub portrays Jodorowsky's best friend, the poet and novelist Enrique Lihn. During an interview at the Cannes Film Festival in , Jodorowsky announced his plans to finally make The Son of El Topo as soon as financial backing is obtained.
Jodorowsky started his comic career in Mexico with the creation of Anibal 5 series in mid with illustrations by Manuel Moro. He also wrote original stories for at least two or three other comic books in Mexico during those days: Los insoportables Borbolla was one of them.
This graphic novel has its roots deep in the tarot and its symbols, e. The Incal which would branch off into a prequel and sequel forms the first in a sequence of several science fiction comic book series, all set in the same space opera Jodoverse or "Metabarons Universe" published by Humanoids Publishing.
Many ideas and concepts derived from Jodorowsky's planned adaptation of Dune which he would have been loosely based upon Frank Herbert 's original novel are featured in this universe.
In a interview with the Danish comic book magazine Strip! Jodorowsky's comic book work also appears in Taboo volume 4 ed.
Stephen R. Bissette , which features an interview with the director, designs for his version of Frank Herbert's Dune , comic storyboards for El Topo , and a collaboration with Moebius with the illustrated Eyes of the Cat.
Jodorowsky collaborated with Milo Manara in Borgia , a graphic novel about the history of the House of Borgia.
Jodorowsky spent almost a decade reconstructing the original form of the Tarot de Marseille. Psychomagic aims to heal psychological wounds suffered in life.
This therapy is based on the belief that the performance of certain acts can directly act upon the unconscious mind, releasing it from a series of traumas, some of which practitioners of the therapy believe are passed down from generation to generation.
Psychogenealogy includes the studying of the patient's personality and family tree in order to best address their specific sources. It is similar, in its phenomenological approach to genealogy, to the Constellations pioneered by Bert Hellinger.
Jodorowsky has several books on his therapeutic methods, including Psicomagia: La trampa sagrada Psychomagic: The Sacred Trap and his autobiography, La danza de la realidad The Dance of Reality , which he was filming as a feature-length film in March To date he has published more than 23 novels and philosophical treatises, along with dozens of articles and interviews.
His books are widely read in Spanish and French, but are for the most part unknown to English-speaking audiences. In these conferences, Jodorowsky would pave the way to building a strong base of students of his philosophy, which deals with understanding the unconscious as the "over-self", composed of many generations of family relatives, living or deceased, acting on the psyche , well into adult lives, and causing compulsions.
Of all his work, Jodorowsky considers these activities to be the most important of his life. Since these talks have dwindled to once a month and take place at the Librairie Les Cent Ciels in Paris.
It was then released on streaming services on 1 August He is currently married to the artist and costume designer Pascale Montandon. The fashion model Alma Jodorowsky is the granddaughter of Alejandro.
On his religious views, Jodorowsky has called himself an "atheist mystic". He does not drink or smoke,  and has stated that he does not eat red meat or poultry because he "does not like corpses", basing his diet on vegetables, fruits, grains and occasionally marine products.
Jodorowsky was interviewed by Daniel Pinchbeck for the Franco-German television show Durch die Nacht mit … on the TV station Arte , in a very personal discussion, spending a night together in France, continuing the interview in different locations such as a park and a hotel.
When Jodorowsky's first feature film, Fando y Lis , premiered at the Acapulco Film Festival, the screening was controversial and erupted into a riot, due to its graphic content.
When I wanted to do the rape scene, I explained to [Mara Lorenzio] that I was going to hit her and rape her. There was no emotional relationship between us, because I had put a clause in all the women's contracts stating that they would not make love with the director.
We had never talked to each other. I knew nothing about her. We went to the desert with two other people: the photographer and a technician. No one else.
I said, 'I'm not going to rehearse. There will be only one take because it will be impossible to repeat. Roll the cameras only when I signal you to.
Hit me. I said, 'Harder. I ached for a week. After she had hit me long enough and hard enough to tire her, I said, 'Now it's my turn.
Roll the cameras. I really I really raped her. And she screamed Then she told me that she had been raped before.
You see, for me the character is frigid until El Topo rapes her. And she has an orgasm. That's why I show a stone phallus in that scene She has an orgasm.
She accepts the male sex. And that's what happened to Mara in reality. She really had that problem. Fantastic scene.
A very, very strong scene. Travel back in time to check out the early roles of some of Hollywood's heavy hitters.

This documentary tells the story of director Alejandro Jodorowsky's unfinished masterpiece: his attempt to produce a film adaptation of Frank Herbert's sprawling science-fiction novel 'Dune' in the mids -- a project which was never completed, in part because it collapsed under the weight of the director's incredibly ambitious vision for the movie.
It was to have been a larger-than-life epic, as grand as Stanley Kubrick's ' Using these, combined with talking-heads interviews of those involved, the documentary tries to show us how the finished film would have looked.
What makes all this so captivating are the interviews with Jodorowsky himself, and his incredible passion as he recounts the tale of an unfinished project from 40 years ago.
Entering into Jodorowsky's world is like falling into a visionary dream where anything and everything is possible.
Dan O'Bannon and H. Giger will design the sets and costumes. Pink Floyd will provide the score. It's hard to imagine a more ambitious movie, considering the technical limitations of the time.
Yet, as the documentary shows, the ripples from this never-completed, ahead-of-its-time film spread out in many directions, inspiring different ideas that made their way into later films such as 'Star Wars' and 'Alien' -- and which continue to inspire filmmakers today.
