Presented in celebration of the release of Alejandro Jodorowsky's Poesia sin fin (Endless Poetry): Aug 4-10!

Need a religious experience? How about an acid trip? Why not both? The scandal of the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, Alejandro Jodorowsky's seminal hallucinogenic work The Holy Mountain takes every religion, throws them in a mixer, and makes a hell of a cocktail. Focused on a thief/Christ-like drifter, the narrative hopscotches around to different drug-induced reenactments of history, including the conquest of Mexico fought between iguanas and frogs—and that’s just the beginning. From there he meets an alchemist (played by Jodorowsky himself), who takes him and seven figures to the titular Holy Mountain for the craziest enlightenment of all time. Equally appalling and hilarious, The Holy Mountain is one of the greatest cult classics of the 1970s.

Jodorowsky’s flood of sacrilegious imagery and existential symbolism in The Holy Mountain is an unforgettable cinematic spiritual quest for enlightenment, pitting illusion against truth. The Alchemist (Jodorowsky) assembles together a group of people from all walks of life to represent the planets in the solar system. The occult adept’s intention is to put his recruits through strange mystical rites and divest them of their worldly baggage before embarking on a trip to Lotus Island. There they ascend the Holy Mountain to displace the immortal gods who secretly rule the universe.
