DJ Carlos Nino spins before and after the screening.

“championed by john lennon, and adored by the counter-culture, this sweeping psychedelic epic is jodorowsky’s masterwork. surreal, shocking and breathtakingly beautiful, holy mountain is the pinnacle of avant-garde filmmaking. the alchemist guides his disciples through a phantasmagoric landscape to the holy mountain so that they may confront the gods. for thirty years the film was not shown theatrically and is only now being rediscovered by new generations. don’t miss an opportunity to see this rare and beautiful gem under the stars and open sky. due to nudity and disturbing imagery, this film is not appropriate for children under 17.”
