The Dance of Reality

La danza de la realidad

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s first movie in 23 years is a full-throttle return to form for the mad maestro of El Topo and The Holy Mountain, now an octogenarian. A semi-autobiographical, semi-fantasized coming-of-age tale reminiscent of Fellini’s Amarcord, the film is set in 1930s Chile, where a little boy named Alejandro grows up, unhappily, under a stern, domineering father and a statuesque, operatically-emotive mother. The Dance of Reality may be Jodorowsky’s most coherent, grounded, and personal film ever.

The Girl from the South

La chica del sur

In 1989, just three weeks after the Tiananmen Square massacre, José Luis García attended the World Festival of Youth and Students in Pyongyang, North Korea. He documented the event with a VHS camera, inspired by the presence of Lim Su-Kyung, a student activist from Seoul who was boldly speaking out in favour of the peaceful reunification of North and South Korea. Su-Kyung created a further stir by announcing that she would cross the Panmunjom military border on foot, an act that would put her in danger of imprisonment or even death.

The problem is that the only woman who knows all the songs is seriously ill.

The last Christeros

Los ultimos cristeros

Los últimos cristeros is a visually powerful, yet intimate exploration of a lesser known aspect of Mexican history—the dramatic war between Church and State in the 1920s and 1930s. It follows the valiant story of a small band of men who refuse to accept amnesty and instead, continue their fight against religious persecution and the prohibition of their right to practice their Catholic faith in public.

The Last Elvis

El ultimo Elvis

If you are already an Elvis fan, you will identify strongly with the intrigue and pathos of this film. If you are not an Elvis fan, you may just find yourself converted. The far-reaching legacy and fanatic passion of this musical legend born in Mississippi in 1935 is wondrously depicted in Armando Bo's first feature film.
