ABKCO Films has released a trailer for "The Dance of Reality," legendary Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's long anticipated return to the director's chair after more than twenty years.

"The Dance of Reality" debuted this time last year as part of the Directors' Fortnight at Cannes. The film is an adaptation of Jodorowsky's autobiography of the same name and unlike other films "based on a true story," Jodorowsky experiments with the natural world - constantly toying with the color palette and even incorporating certain elements of the fantastic.

In tandem with the release of the trailer, ABKCO has also debuted a featurette where Jodorowsky explains how close the film is to his heart. In addition to disclosing the thought behind casting his sons and collaborating with his wife on the costumes, Jodorowsky explicitly addresses the question of whether or not he will continue to make films.

"If I die tomorrow, it is my last will," he says with a laugh. "But if I continue, it's my comeback. I will make pictures till I die."

"The Dance of Reality" is out in limited release on May 23. Watch the trailer and the featurette below:
