The Holy Mountain
Multi-venue film club Deeper Into Movies is devoted to showcasing interesting and unusual films, often partnering them with enlightening documentaries, DJ sets and lectures by leading commentators. They celebrated their third birthday in May this year, and as part of the ongoing celebrations they’ve announced a screening that promises to deliver much more than the average film experience.
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ‘The Holy Mountain’ was controversial upon it’s initial release in 1973 due it’s sacrilegious imagery and provocative symbolism. Described as a “psychedelic masterpiece” by Fact Magazine, the film follows a Christ-like character and his seven companions on their journey to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment.
On July 28th the film will be screened at the Rio Cinema with a live accompaniment by Japanese experimental noise band Bo Ningen, who have composed an all-new soundtrack for the event. The four-piece are well-regarded for their explosive live performances, and have been compared to the likes of Can and Boredoms.
Bo Ningen live score the ‘The Holy Mountain’ takes place on Saturday July 28th at the Rio Cinema, Dalston.
