After the success of his previous Kickstarter campaign for The Dance of Reality, you can now help to Kickstart Alejandro Jodorowsky’s next film Endless Poetry by trading your money for poetic money (and more.)

With a track record that includes Fando Y Lis, El Topo, The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre and The Dance of Reality, as well as the “greatest film never made” Dune (subject of Frank Pavich’s documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune) Endless Poetry is guaranteed to be something special from the now 86 year old director.

Alejandro Jodorowsky, one of world cinema’s most extraordinary directors, has released a pledge to fund his autobiographical feature film The Dance of Reality.

The eighty-two year old, who made such extraordinary films as El Topo and The Holy Mountain back in the 1970s, is looking to produce a film without financial ties to the film industry. He wishes to fund the film and presumably distribute it himself.

Here is a short (and on the fly) interview I did with legendary Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (Fando Y Lis, El Topo, The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre), back in 2009.

Jodorowsky was in London exhibiting works he created with his wife, artist Pascale Montandon. They were kind enough to speak to us at the private view.

This scene makes up part of a short documentary I created around the time covering Guerrilla Zoo’s Season of Jodorowsky.

I hope it gives you a small insight into Jodorowsky and Montandon’s creative relationship and some the the themes that permeate their work.

It is great news to hear that the visionary Mexican films El Topo (1970) and The Holy Mountain (1973) by Alejandro Jodorowsky are soon to be released on Blu-Ray. Jodorowsky’s films are extraordinary journeys for their audience and their arresting visual styles play a big part in this. I expect the Blu-Ray treatment will really add to the experience.

In addition to this Jodorowsky’s Sante Sangre (1989) was released on Blu-ray at the start of this year by Severin Films with a long list of extras.
