Adan Jodorowsky's "The Voice Thief" is a surreal odyssey, starring Asia Argento.

Hello!

My name is Adan Jodorowsky, and I just finished shooting a film in Chile with my father, Alejandro Jodorowsky. The last time we collaborated before this was on the film "Santa Sangre." I created this Kickstarter because I am in the process of directing my own film, and wanted to involve fans of my music in my foray into filmmaking with a short project titled "The Voice Thief."

Taking place in a mythical Miami, the short recounts the story of Noev and Naya, his opera singer wife. One night during a particularly violent argument, Noev strangles his wife to the point where she loses her voice. This begins Noev’s odyssey through Miami’s underworld to recover his wife’s voice through various supernatural means. His journey takes him to the den of a prostitute dwarf who still lives as a child in the shadow of her mother’s corpse, a cult that worships a giant transvestite who drips gold from her vagina, and finally back to Naya where they meet their violent end.

It will be surreal and beautiful. I have some great people helping me out- Asia Argento and my brother Cristobal Jodorowsky (we acted together in 'Santa Sangre') will star, and Alexis Zabe, an accomplished DP, is going to shoot it.

Borscht Corp, the company who recently had 4 projects in SXSW and made "Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke," named to the "25 New Faces of Independent Film List" by Filmmaker Magazine,  is producing it.

We are shooting at the end of September, and hope to have the film finished by early next year. I didn't want to do the film in the traditional Hollywood mold- I want to bring my vision to life on its own terms, without limits, but I need your help doing this.

I think I have some fun prizes I want to share with you in exchange for your support, and I can't wait to get started!

Thank you,

Adanowsky

Hola,

Mi nombre es Adan Jodorowsky y acabo de terminar de filmar una película en Chile con mi padre, Alejandro Jodorowsky. La última vez que tuvimos la oportunidad de trabajar juntos fue en su película “Santa Sangre”

Esta vez he creado esta página de Kickstarter porque es mi turno de aventurarme a dirigir mi primera película y me gustaría que todas las personas que siguen mi carrera musical sean parte de este proyecto titulado “El Ladrón de Voces”

El cortometraje ralata la historia de Noev y su esposa Naya, una cantante de Opera. Una noche, en medio de una discusión particularmente violenta, Noev estrangula a su esposa hasta el punto de dejarla sin voz. Esto da inicio a la odisea de Noev por los submundos de un Miami mítico, buscando recuperar la voz de su esposa, a través de diferentes medios sobrenaturales. Su jornada lo lleva a un prostíbulo de una enana que todavía vive como una niña bajo la sombra del cadáver de su madre; a un culto que venera un travesti gigante que derrama oro por su vagina y finalmente de nuevo hacia Naya, donde los dos encuentran un final violento. Será surrealista y hermoso.

Cuento con la ayuda de gente muy talentosa como Asia Argento y mi hermano Cristóbal Jodorowsky (actuamos juntos en Santa Sangre) y Alexis Zabe estará a cargo de la cinematografía del cortometraje.

La producción estará a cargo de Borscht Corp, la compañía que recientemente
presentó 4 proyectos durante SXSW, que produjo “Life and Freaky Times of
Uncle Luke”, y que fue incluida entre las “25 caras nuevas en la lista de Cine
Independiente” por Filmmaker Magazine.

Estaremos grabando a finales de septiembre, y esperamos tener la película lista para principios del próximo año. No quería hacer la película de una manera tradicional Hollywoodense, quiero mostrarles mi visión en mis propios términos, sin límites, pero necesito su ayuda para lograrlo.

Tengo premios divertidos que quiero compartir con ustedes a cambio de su apoyo. ¡No veo la hora de comenzar!

Gracias,

Adanowsky
