If each of us has a genetic heritage, we also possess a psychological heritage which is passed down from generation to generation. Alejandro Jodorowsky, a filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist convinced that art only has a deep meaning if it heals and frees the consciouness, created Psychomagic. Through theatrical and poetic acts directly adressed to the unconscious, this therapy allows people to free themselves of psychological blocks.

Alejandro Jodorowsky born in 1929, in Tocopilla, Chile to a family of Jewish emigrants from Russia. In 1942 he moved to Santiago where he attended university, was a circus clown and a puppeteer. In 1955 he went to Paris and studied mime with Marcel Marceau. At the same time, his interest in cinema grew: in fact, his first short, «La Cravate», dates back to 1957. He gained world renown with his subsequent feature-length films «Fando and Lis» (1968), «El Topo» (1971) and «The Holy Mountain» (1973), which reflect his visionary and baroque style, mixing surrealism, a mystical thrust and pyschedelia. A novelist, poet and comic book author, and still one of the most famous artists of the Surrealist movement.
