Entertainment Weekly Premiere’s Exclusive New Clip From Jodorowsky’s The Dance Of Reality


Thanks to the excellent documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, director Alejandro Jodorowsky has become well known over the past year for a film he did not make (that would be his abortive attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune). Now it’s time to turn our attention to a movie he has actually succeeded in bringing to the screen.

The Dance of Reality is in fact the El Topo director’s first film in 23 years and details — with what seems to be his usual hallucinatory verve — Jodorowsky’s own childhood in Chile. The film arrives in cinemas on May 23, but you can see both an exclusive clip and the movie’s trailer below.
