Description

This deluxe box set titled Alejandro Jodorowsky: 4K Restoration Collection, includes three of Jodorowsky’s cult-favorite classics: El Topo, The Holy Mountain, and Fando Y Lis, restored in 4K on Blu-ray, as well as his latest, and most inspirational film Psychomagic, A Healing Art.

Loaded with extras and ephemera, the box set features a 78-page book with photos and essays, a set of art cards together with 4 Blu-ray discs and 2 CDs housed in a high quality case. Also included are new interviews with Jodorowsky, his son Brontis, who makes his acting debut as the young boy in El Topo and Pablo Leder, Jodorowsky’s long time personal assistant. Columbia University professor Richard Peña provides insightful introductions to each of these classic films. A short film, The A to Z of The Holy, narrated by Jodorowsky biographer Ben Cobb, probes the history of Jodorowsky and his films. Also included are CD soundtracks for El Topo and The Holy Mountain plus Jodorowsky’s rarely seen first film, the 1957 short film La Cravate completes this special collectable package.

In 2020, Jodorowsky is as relevant as he’s ever been. In addition to completing  Psychomagic, A Healing Art, he supervised the color correction of the 4K restorations of his essential films using the original 35mm elements, with stunning and vibrant results.  El Topo  is presented in 1:33 aspect ratio as it was shown in theaters in 1970. It is also available for the first time in 1.85:1 widescreen. Jodorowsky originally envisioned the film with this aspect ratio as an homage to Sergio Leone, and a half century later, that dream has finally been fulfilled.
