About Alexandro Jodorowsky
Alejandro Jodorowsky (also known as Alexandro Jodorowsky) is a Chilean film and theatre director, screenwriter, playwright, actor, comic book writer, author, poet, mime, musician, and spiritual guru. He is best known for his avant-garde, cult films, such as "El Topo," a midnight movie favorite. Jean Giraud aka Moebius was a French artist, cartoonist, and writer, who worked in the Franco-Belgian bandes dessinees tradition. Giraud earned worldwide fame, predominantly under the pseudonym Moebius, which he used to create a wide range of science fiction and fantasy comics in a highly imaginative and surreal, almost abstract style. Esteemed by Federico Fellini, Stan Lee and Hayao Miyazaki, among many others, he is considered as the most influential bande dessinee artist, and a continued influence to filmmakers and artists around the world.
