ENDLESS POETRY (2016) dir Alejandro Jodorowsky w/Adan Jodorowsky, Brontis Jodorowsky, Leandro Taub, Pamela Flores, Alejandro Jodorowsky [128 min; DCP]
Through the intensely personal lens of Alejandro Jodorowsky, renowned father of the midnight movie, ENDLESS POETRY tells the story of his years spent as an aspiring poet in 1940s Chile. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, 20-year-old Jodorowsky leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago. Living with inspirational artists, Jodorowsky’s exploration of his inner feelings takes him on a journey of sensual experimentation leading him to realize his innermost desires and passions.
Continuing the autobiographical story he began in THE DANCE OF REALITY, ENDLESS POETRY is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever, written by a man who has dedicated his existence to creating spiritual and artistic awareness, told through Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language.
