Psychomagic: A Healing Art – Ottawa Premiere of the new Alejandro Jodorowsky documentary on November 25th, encore screening on November 26th!
Psychomagic explores the therapeutic work of director Alejandro Jodorowsky, showing by means of real acts, what Psychomagic is, its principle, how it is practiced, and how it is applied in life. Jodorowsky works directly with real, suffering people who are eager to solve their problems.
“a moving, visually striking exploration of the unconventional psychotherapeutic techniques that the filmmaker has developed over a lifetime…Psychomagic could easily stand as a fitting encapsulation of the themes of suffering and transcendence that have run throughout his entire career.” (Slant)
“mesmerizing summation of his unusual career ambition, a dreamlike chronicle of human suffering for which Jodorowsky offers a wild solution on par with his craziest filmmaking conceits…a fascinating rumination on troubled people” (Indie Wire)
“It’s all very poetic and strange, which again is Jodorowsky’s wheelhouse…endlessly fascinating” (Film Threat)
