The Dance of Reality movie sceneAfter a 23-year hiatus, the biographical fantasy-drama The Dance of Reality marks the triumphant return of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind the Seventies cult classics El Topo, The Holy Mountain and, most recently, 1989’s Santa Sangre.

In the radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky (Jeremias Herskovitz) is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contributed to his burgeoning surreal consciousness.

The legendary filmmaker was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where the film was shot. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.

The movie opened theatrically to outstanding reviews in May, 2014, receiving a 93% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 44 published reviews.

Presented in Spanish with English subtitles, The Dance of Reality is a Chilean/French co-production.
