Life and career

Jodorowsky was born in Chile. His first film experience was a prominent role in his father's 1970 film El Topo.

When he was 12 years old, his father cast him in a planned film adaptation of Dune by Frank Herbert. He was trained to play the part of the novel's protagonist, Paul Atreides. He had been taught by Jean-Pierre Vignau, a famous French coach in Japanese jujitsu karate, judo, aikido and also with a variety of different knives and swords. His training was intensive: 6 hours a day, seven days a week over a period of two years until the film project was shelved. Brontis also revealed that this training was painful and merciless.

Jodorowsky received his acting training in Parisian theatres and at the Conservatoire du XIVe. In 2011 he attended a three-month workshop at the New York Film Academy and in 2013 graduated at the Studio Theatre D'Asnières in France.

He also has a career in theatre; he directed and performed in numerous plays, most of them in Paris. Many of his works were presented at the Théâtre Du Soleil. He is also known for his Atrides series of plays.

In 1991 his daughter, Alma Jodorowsky, was born. She is a French model, singer and actress.

In 2009, he wrote and directed a play with his father and was also an actor in "Le Gorille" (The Gorilla). It became one of his better-known pieces.

In the film La Danza De La Realidad (The Dance Of Reality), he had to play the role of his grandfather that he never knew. He discovered a lot about his father (who directed the film) and what he had endured over his lifetime. This grandfather died before the birth of Brontis, so he never saw him with his own eyes. He reprised the role of Jaime Jodorowsky in the film's sequel, Endless Poetry, which, like La Danza De La Realidad is inspired by his father's life experiences; this time the film is focused on Alejandro's youth and discovery of poetry.
