Genre: Documentary

Language: English / ES / PT / FR / RO / EN subtitles

The pathological pursuit of profit and power.

The documentary shows the development of the contemporary business corporation, from a legal entity that originated as a government-chartered institution meant to affect specific public functions to the rise of the modern commercial institution entitled to most of the legal rights of a person. Taking its status as a legal “person” to the logical conclusion, the film puts the corporation on the psychiatrist’s couch to ask “What kind of person is it?” What the study illustrates is that in the its behavior, this type of “person” typically acts like a dangerously destructive psychopath without conscience. The film was nominated for over 26 international awards.

A visual record of the sacred movements and dances by Gurdjieff’s devoted pupil Jeanne de Salzmann.

The Gurdjieff movements is a series of sacred dances authored by G. I. Gurdjieff and taught to his students as part of the work of self observation and self study. The student, even from the beginning, through the high degree of sustained attention required to perfect himself in the movements, is using one of the specific means of self-knowledge, and of attaining the cognition and comprehension of reality.

The music for the movements was written by Gurdjieff and Thomas de Hartmann.

Director: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Producer: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Genre: Art House / Fantasy
Country: Mexico / United States
Language: English / Spanish

The psychedelic masterpiece about Jesus searching for enlightenment.

The Holy Mountain gives the omniscient view of what social engineering caused by greed has done to the modern world, but shows us how to live and not give into a material world.
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s flood of sacrilegious imagery and existential symbolism is a spiritual quest for enlightenment pitting illusion against truth. The Alchemist assembles together a group of people from all walks of life to represent the planets in the solar system. The occult adept’s intention is to put his recruits through strange mystical rites and divest them of their wordly baggage before embarking on a trip to Lotus Island. There they ascend the Holy Mountain to displace the immortal gods who secretly rule the Universe.
