When cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky made The Rainbow Thief in 1990, it marked the beginning of a long dry spell for the director. While he was engaged in other creative endeavors, including his popular comic-book series The Metabarons, his plans for a sequel to his visionary film El Topo (1970) never got off the ground. Jodorowsky was the subject of a recent documentary, Jodorowsky’s Dune, about his failed attempt to make an epic-length film version of Frank Herbert’s science-fiction novel. The documentary was co-produced by Michel Seydoux, Jodorowsky’s longtime friend and an early backer of the Dune project. In The Dance of Reality, Seydoux reunites with Jodorowsky for the director’s first feature film in more than 20 years.
