Renowned Cult Filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s newest film, a documentary titled, Psychomagic, A Healing Art, will premiere exclusively on Alamo on Demand on August 7th. The documentary is an intimate exploration of the Jodorowsky’s theory of trauma therapy. His unique concept of healing uses performance art as a vehicle to counter deep, debilitating psychic suffering with literal ‘acts of confrontation’ in real world applications. Drawing from a life-long study of philosophy, psychology, ethnology, and world religions, from Freud to shamans, from Kabbalah to Gurdjieff, and everything in between, Jodorowsky’s films have dealt with the individual quest for redemption and enlightenment, the protagonist facing bizarre and provocative challenges that lead to personal catharsis.
Psychomagic explores the Jodorowsky’s therapeutic work using real life subjects in real world situations. Jodorowsky explains and demonstrates Psychomagic’s principles, how it is practiced, and how it is applied. The film’s distributor ABKCO is currently pre-selling a deluxe box set titled, Alejandro Jodorowsky: 4K Restoration Collection, that will ship August 21st. You can order the set here: https://shop.abkco.com/products/alejandro-jodorowsky-4k-restoration-collection-4-blu-ray-2-cd
