MAD Brings Cult Director Jodorowsky Retro to U.S. for First Time

The film program at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) will host the first American retrospective of Chilean-born director Alejandro Jodorowsky, from September 23 through October 8, 2010. In the program, Blood into Gold: The Cinematic Alchemy of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the museum will screen six films from the director’s oeuvre, including “Fando y Lis (Fando and Lis),” “El Topo (The Mole),” “Holy Mountain,” and “La Cravate.” The cult-favorite surrealist director, who can count Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and David Lynch as fans, will be in town for screenings and a master class on art-making and the quest for personal and spiritual enlightenment.
