Alejandro Jodo

Dance of Reality

The last movie Alejandro Jodorowsky directed was 1990’s The Rainbow Thief, and while the visionary behind El Topo, Santa Sangre and others has done some writing and acting, The Dance of Reality (La danza de la realidad) is his first fully realized return to filmmaking in 23 years. That’s been an excruciatingly long wait for fans, but the trailer here delivers a lot of the director’s signature moves. So it’s a return in at least three ways. He’s back in the director’s chair (he also wrote and acts in it), he’s back exploring the circus (and several other thematic favorites), but he’s also looking into his own history as Dance is an autobiographical work envisioning his childhood in Chile with surreal liberties taken to champion the power of imagination. Check out the trailer for yourself:
