The key element of this study by Ana-Maria Gavrila, focuses on Jodorowsky’s cinematic poetry and on the filmmaker’s mode of filtering history, memory, subjectivity and magical realism, adding a critical dimension to our understanding of the politics and poetics of self-representation. The Dance of Reality is Jodorowsky’s most personal work to date, intentionally blurring the lines between past and present into oblivion, and consequently finding salvation through art.
