Exactly 50 years ago, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky shocked Cannes festival with the premiere of his film The Holy Mountain.

Due to health issues of the artist, this show is cancelled and will be postponed to next year's edition of VIDEODROOM. Tickets remain valid, ticket holders will be contacted by email.

The Holy Mountain is a psychedelic slice of surrealism that became a true cult classic over the years. This macabre masterpiece can count illustrious names such as Peter Gabriel, Erykah Badu, Marina Abramovic, David Lynch and Nicolas Winding Refn among its fans.

Also on that list: Belgian saxophonist, composer and producer Mattias De Craene. He composed a brand new soundtrack to the film for VIDEODROOM. As icing on the birthday cake, he will perform it live in De Vooruit's Theaterzaal with the brand new remastered 4K version of the film on the big screen!
