Video Spotlight - A Conversation with Alejandro Jodorowsky

Written by Jim Kolmar | July 9, 2014

It's a little too easy to bandy around the title "living legend" these days, but if ever a filmmaker has earned that accolade, it's Chilean maestro Alejandro Jodorowsky.

At SXSW 2014 we presented the North American Premiere of his return to feature film directing, The Dance of Reality. A characteristically surreal, richly metaphorical exploration of his own autobiography, the film was accompanied by the filmmaker himself. Jodorowsky sat down with Drew McWeeney of HitFix for a conversation that ranged from the bizarre to the inspiring, but never less than generous. Check out an excerpt above, and stay tuned for the full hour-long verson!

The Dance of Reality is out now in select theaters - head to the website to find out where.
