A chat with the actor Brontis Jodorowsky at the Montreal Festival du Nouveau Cinema

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Brontis Jodorowsky is the son of Alejandro Jodorowsky,  a Chilean-French filmmaker, playwright, actor, author, musician, comics writer and spiritual guru, who introduced his father's latest film, The Dance of Reality, in which he plays the role of his grand father. Alejandro's father was a rather brutal personality and by choosing his son, who he loves, to play the man he had not the greatest feelings for, was quite a challenge. The film is the first by Alejandro in 23 years and is, in my opinion, a masterpiece. I had the pleasure of a morning chat with him the morning of the closing event at Montreal's Festival du Nouveau Cinema.
