Alejandro Jodorowsky Double Feature! After a 23-year hiatus, the visionary Chilean filmmaker returns with THE DANCE OF REALITY and ENDLESS POETRY, autobiographical films that trace the director's life through an artistic awakening in the 1940s.

“Alchemical Love,” an exhibit of graphic art by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Pascale Montandon-Jodorowsky, opens at the Blum & Poe Gallery in Los Angeles on January 16.

Visionary Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky (EL TOPO, THE HOLY MOUNTAIN) returns after a 23-year hiatus with this radiantly visceral autobiographical film. Shot in the coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert where the director was born, the film follows a young Jodorowsky as he is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contributed to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, THE DANCE OF REALITY reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.

2016, ABKCO Films, 128 min, Chile/UK/France, Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Continuing the autobiographical story begun in THE DANCE OF REALITY, this film takes place in Chile in the 1940s, when the 20-year-old Jodorowsky leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago. Living among inspirational artists including Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín and Nicanor Parra (all unknowns at the time, who would later become driving forces of 20th-century Hispanic literature), Jodorowsky’s journey of sensual experimentation leads him to realize his innermost desires and passions. An ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever, ENDLESS POETRY bursts with Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language.
