Once considered the cinematic heir to Luis Bunuel and Federico Fellini, Chilean-born director Alejandro Jodorowsky shocked and amazed audiences with his films El Topo and The Holy Mountain, which tell mythic, mind-blowing tales of spiritual transformation.

"When I saw them," says Mario Sorrenti, "I was inspired not only to reference them in a fashion story, but they also made me want to make films one day. The imagery is amazing, and his commentary on society, religion, politics and art is something that is still relavant today."
