This month, Logan Square International Flim Series gives Chicagoans the opportunity to view almost the entirety of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s feature film output, with FREE weekly screenings throughout the month. The series opened up January 2nd, with great success, when Alejandro premiered the series with Santa Sangre.
In the space of just 6 feature films, Alejandro Jodorowsky has brought to the screen an astounding array of images and ideas. A visionary among visionaries, this living legend has invented a religion, authored what has been widely called “the best comic book ever,” and taken on film as just one of many media. His status as a cult film hero was solidified when his EL TOPO (1970) became one of the very first superhits at midnight showings at the infamous Elgin Theater.
