Synopsis

Alejandro Jodorowsky was born in 1929 in a coastal town in Chile. In The Dance of Reality, Jodorowsky reconstitutes the adventure of his early life in that town, where he discovered the fundamentals of reality as he underwent an unhappy and alienated childhood as part of an uprooted family.

Our take

After 23 years away, Alejandro Jodorowsky returned to filmmaking with this surreal journey into autobiography. Utterly personal and deeply idiosyncratic, this magical realist wartime musical follows a vivid, hallucinatory dream logic. A family affair spanning generations and starring his own family.
