Time Is Running Out to Get Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Poetic Money

Dinero Poetico by Alejandro Jodorowsky

Dinero Poetico by Alejandro Jodorowsky

Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky is famous for the cult classic El Topo and infamous for a never-made film version of Frank Herbert’s Dune. He is also an author of graphic storytelling whose work, often illustrated by Moebius, frequently appeared in Heavy Metal.

Jodorowsky turned to Kickstarter to fund his latest film, Endless Poetry (Poesia sin Fin), and there’s good news: It’s reached its funding goal of $350,000. Like any Kickstarter campaign, there’s esoterica galore for those who contribute. You want a t-shirt? He’s got t-shirts. You want an autographed script of Sons of El Topo? It can be yours. Random props from his most recent film, Dance of Reality? All it takes is money.

It takes money to make money—in an interesting move, Jodorowsky is repaying contributors in his own currency, Poetic Money (Dinero Poetico). For every real-world U.S. dollar you put in, Jodorowsky will send you a dollar of not-so-funny money featuring his own face and slightly depressing poetry.

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Kickstarter campaign ends at 8:35 AM Eastern on Sunday, March 22.
