Exactly 50 years ago, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky shocked Cannes festival with the premiere of his film "The Holy Mountain"; a psychedelic slice of surrealism that became a true cult classic over the years. This macabre masterpiece can count illustrious names such as Peter Gabriel, Erykah Badu, Marina Abramovic, David Lynch and Nicolas Winding Refn among its fans.

Als on that list: Belgian saxophonist, composer and producer Mattias De Craene. He composed a brand new soundtrack to the film for Videodrome. As icing on the birthday cake, he will perform it live in De Vooruit's Theaterzaal with the brand new remastered 4K version of the film on the big screen!

"It's crazy how everything in my life seems to come together for this live soundtrack. Tarot, delicious absurdism, depth, cinematography, humor, film music,... The complex maze that describes life's journey in a complexless way. It seems to be written on my body and it feels like the last 2 years in my life have literally wriggled their way to the top of The Holy Mountain. My head, soul and thus music come home to roost with this movie! "
