CRYSTAL CAVE

About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life! It refers to a vital substance that nourishes, and inspires our soul day by day. A sort of vivid shadow that manages to give birth twice a year to a print magazine named PARIS, LA.

THE DANCE OF REALITY | JODOROWSKY’S NEW FILM

I recently posted about a new documentary, about Alejandro Jodorowsky and his attempt at making a feature length film of Dune in the 1970s. That film, simply titled, “Jodorowsky’s Dune,” was an amazing portrait of the filmmaker. Jodorowsky is intensely inspiring, so amazingly full of life and love and light. His passion for filmmaking, especially […]
