Alejandro Jodorowsky Prullansky (Spanish: [xoðoˈɾofski]; born 17 February 1929) is a Chilean-French filmmaker and artist. Since 1948, Jodorowsky has worked as a novelist, screenwriter, a poet, a playwright, an essayist, a film and theater director and producer, an actor, a film editor, a comics writer, a musician and composer, a philosopher, a puppeteer, a mime, a psychologist and psychoanalyst, a draughtsman, a painter, a sculptor, and a spiritual guru. Best known for his avant-garde films El Topo (1970) and The Holy Mountain (1973), he has been "venerated by cult cinema enthusiasts" for his work which "is filled with violently surreal images and a hybrid blend of mysticism and religious provocation".
Art Review mentioned how Jodorowsky's retrospective got cancelled over sexual assault comments, "East Harlem’s El Museo del Barrio has announced the cancellation of its retrospective of Chilean filmmaker and artist Alejandro Jodorowsky’s work following an investigation into public remarks made by the artist about raping his co-star, Mara Lorenzio, on screen in the making of his film El Topo 1970, Hyperallergic reports. In 2017 Helen O’Hara published a report with The Telegraph in which a passage from Jodorowsky’s El Topo: A Book of the Film 1972 was highlighted: After she had hit me long enough and hard enough to tire her, I said, Now it’s my turn. Roll the cameras. And I really … I really … I really raped her. And she screamed. Then, Lorenzio told me that she had been raped before. Jodorowsky would later alter his confession during an interview with Empire magazine in 2007 to say: I didn’t rape Mara, but I penetrated her with her consent."
