Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ‘Dance of Reality’ Gets U.S. Release (EXCLUSIVE)

ABKCO Films has acquired U.S. theatrical and home entertainment rights to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s “The Dance of Reality” nine months after it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film will be released on May 23 in Los Angeles and New York before expanding.

The Dance of Reality” — Jodorowsky’s first film in 23 years — will make its U.S. debut at South by Southwest in March, where he will be on hand for a conversation about this and his other works. The Museum of Modern Art in New York will host a special screening on March 14.

The film was shot in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert where Jodorowsky was born and underwent an unhappy childhood as part of an uprooted family. The film combines his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry. Variety’s Scott Foundas gave “Reality” a strong review at Cannes, calling it “by turns playful, tragic and surprisingly light on its feet.”

ABKCO previously released Jodorowsky’s “El Topo” and “The Holy Mountain.”
