A double appointment in Milan, divided between the 30th and 31st of May, which could begin with these words: “I’m trying to heal my soul. But it is not a narcissistic movie or self-centered. The poetry is not about history. It speaks of the interior life and universal problems.”
In this way he describes his film when it is still an idea and while he foreshadows it to the crew selected to film it.
Pseudo-autobiographical, it traces for motion pictures the director Chilean childhood, based on the book of memoir of the same name published in 2001.
“Having been separated from my illusory ego, I searched desperately for a way and a sense of life.” Real and imaginary, has as a backdrop Tocopilla, coastal town close to the Chilean desert, Jodorowsky’s birthplace. The comparison with a tough and violent education, an unhappy childhood moved behind the wires of an uprooted family, is surrounded by surrealism and circus settings, because the same Jodorowsky has been a clown in a circus, the protagonist, the real and the one in the movie.
In addition he dedicates himself to the study of the Tarot, in his life and in this appointment, which has been a key part of his artistic and therapeutic career. Mirror of the unconscious soul and tool of help.
