In 1973, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky shocked the Cannes film festival with the premiere of his film The Holy Mountain. More than fifty years later, Belgian saxophonist Matthias De Craene sells his soul to this surrealist masterpiece.
Wednesday October
20:00 Vooruit-Theaterzaal

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 VIDEODROME, which he will perform live in the Theaterzaal with the brand new remastered 4K version of the film on the big screen.

"It's crazy how everything in my life seems to come together for this live soundtrack: tarot, enticing absurdism, depth, cinematography, humour, film music ... A complex maze that describes life in a complexless way. It feels like the last two years of my life have literally wriggled their way to the top of 'The Holy Mountain'. My head, my soul - and therefore my music - come home to this film." - Mattias De Craene.
