East End Film Festival introduction: Filmmaking legend Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, The Holy Mountain) returns with his first feature film in 23 years. A poetic reflection on the filmmaker’s own childhood in a town on the edge of the Chilean desert, The Dance of Reality is a trademark mixture of classical biography, strange mythology, and sections of off-kilter poeticism. It ranks as another great Jodorowsky film about an utterly unique figure finding their place in the world, and seeing what lies beneath it; except this time, it’s explicitly about himself. The EEFF hopes to welcome Alejandro Jodorowsky to London for this screening.
Here is the trailer.
