La danza de la realidad
The Dance of Reality

“Having broken away from my illusory self, I was desperately seeking a path and a meaning to life.” This phrase perfectly sums up Alejandro Jodorowsky’s biographical project: reconstituting the incredible adventure of his life. Alejandro Jodorowsky was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on edge of the Chilean desert, where this film was shot. It was there where he discovered the fundamentals of reality, as he underwent an unhappy and alienated childhood as part of an uprooted family.

Professionnal information
Alejandro Jodorowsky

Born to Jewish Ukrainian parents in Chile, he was involved in theater and became a mime, joining the Marcel Marceau mime troupe and creating his own avant-garde company in Mexico City. His 1979 film El Topo became the first midnight cult movie of the psychedelic generation. He is also the scenarist of many original comic strips and a prolific author of novels, essays and poems. Mystic, he devised the system of psychomagic and he is an unchallenged specialist of Tarot of Marseille.
