The Cinematic Alchemy of Alejandro Jodorowsky

This poster, for the Museum of Art and Design's ongoing film programming, included an essay, calendar, and descriptions for each film. With his infamous cult films The Holy Mountain, El Topo, and Fando y Lis, Chilean-born Alejandro Jodorowsky altered the visual language and philosophy of cinema. "Blood into Gold: The Cinematic Alchemy of Alejandro Jodorowsky" showcased this groundbreaking auteur's complete filmography as a core component of a series exploring his broad influence. The typographic title treatment was custom-drawn, taking inspiration from the iconography of alchemy.
