Produced and directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky
(El Topo, Holy Mountain),
this film is his first in 23 years.
The legendary filmmaker was born in
1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert
where the film was shot. It was there that Jodorowsky underwent an
unhappy and alienated childhood as part of an uprooted family. Blending
his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, The Dance of
Reality reflects Alejandro Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not
objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.
