Part of the Northwest Film Center's new ongoing genre film series, Genrified! Cult & Other Curiosities.

An alchemist undertakes a journey with a messianic man and seven other totemic representatives to a holy site that promises spiritual enlightenment. Among the most psychedelic films to hit the midnight movie circuit of the 1970s, Jodorowsky’s The Holy Mountain is a pure film experience that eschews plot in favor of a densely layered and highly symbolic mythology drawn from its director’s involvement in Zen Buddhism, adherence to daily Tarot readings, and a willingness to embrace both the religious and sacrilegious (sometimes in the same frame). “A scandal when first released, Mr. Jodorowsky’s movie is a dazzling, rambling, often incoherent satire on consumerism, militarism, and the exploitation of third world cultures by the West. It unfurls like a hallucinogenic daydream.”-Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times
