A Conversation with Jodorowsky, Part Two
In part two of Daniel Pinchbeck’s conversation with Alejandro Jodorowsky, the iconic auteur discusses the unconscious force behind creation and the ability of archetypes to act through you in the manifestation of design. From questions about identity and Zen Buddhism to the Tarot and the Kabbala tree of life, Jodorowsky weaves together notions of a unified universe and the merger of the masculine and feminine through the stories of numerology, symbolism, and more.
Jodorowsky is known for his occult masterpieces Holy Mountain and El Topo. This video, directed and edited by Bradley Smith, was filmed on an evening celebrating the release of Jodorowsky's latest book, Psychomagic:
"Psychomagic presents the shamanic and genealogical principles Jodorowsky discovered to create a healing therapy that could use the powers of dreams, art, and theater to empower individuals to heal wounds that in some cases had traveled through generations. The concrete and often surreal poetic actions Jodorowsky employs are part of an elaborate strategy intended to break apart the dysfunctional persona with whom the patient identifies in order to connect with a deeper self. That is when true transformation can manifest."
