Alejandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky is a stage and film director, comic book writer, tarot reader, and unlicensed psychotherapist. He’s best known for his films Holy Mountain, El Topo and Santa Sangria.

He was set to direct the Dune movie in the 80s and after the deal fell through he turned his Dune ideas into a comic universe consisting of L’Incal, Metabarons, and Technopriest. Jodorowsky and artist Moebius unsuccessfully sued director Luc Besson for lifting elements of L’Incal for his movie Fifth Element.

Jodorowsky is friends with musician Marilyn Manson and officiated the wedding of Manson and Dita Von Teese. Manson was to play the pope in the now indefinitely delayed Jodorowsky film King Shot, but may appear instead in Abel Cain.

Jodorowsky’s latest film is the autobiographical The Dance of Reality. He has also raised money for a sequel to El Topo called Abel Cain.
