Alejandro Jodorowsky Discusses The Dance of Reality in a Rare Video Interview


Later this month, legendary director Alejandro Jodorowsky releases The Dance of Reality, his first feature film in more than two decades. CraveOnline had the opportunity to speak at length with the man behind works like El Topo, The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. Check out part one in the player below and catch part two right here.

Based on the director’s own childhood experiences, from his perspective as both an impressionable young boy as well as an older man looking back on that early time in his life, The Dance of Reality offers a surreal but sincere portrayal of a child whose abusive father leaves his wife and son to assassinate a dictator.

The Dance of Reality will be released in select theaters on May 23.
