Does God have a crush on us? vol. 4 / Hmph! vol. 3

Jodorowsky Turns Blood into Gold and Shares it at NYC's Museum of Art & Design

With the winding down of Venice and Telluride and all the build up towards Toronto, Fantastic Fest, and NYFF, neat little programs like the one the Museum of Art and Design is putting on can get lost in the shuffle. Alejandro Jodorowsky is certainly a filmmaker of a particular cinematic taste, so it seems fitting enough that a museum whose acronym is MAD hosts his first American retrospective complete with a "master class" taught by the elder auteur himself.

Take a look at the complete events running from September 23rd - October 8th.

The Museum of Arts and Design is proud to present Blood into Gold: The Cinematic Alchemy of Alejandro Jodorowsky, showcasing the complete body of film work as a core component to a series exploring the broad influence of this groundbreaking auteur. Jodorowsky will be teaching a master class on September 25th that will give insight into his thinking on filmmaking. He will also introduce and participate in a Q&A for the first two films (El Topo on September 23rd and Holy Mountain on September 24th) of this three week film series.

REALLY wish this wasn't sold out;

Master Class with Director Alejandro Jodorowsky
Saturday, September 25 at 3:00 pm

but seeing this in a theater may make up for it.

doesn't look like that will happen though, given that these fucking geniuses thought it would be prudent to screen Jodorowsky movies before Midnight. i mean 7 pm on a Friday? these were made for Midnight. FACT.

check it out if you can, cause it doesn't look like i'll be able too.
