ENDLESS POETRY is the second installment of a proposed five chapter, autobiographical cycle, the first of which was the 2013 DANCE OF REALITY. At 88 years old Jodorowsky has embarked on an emotionally rich, visually-loaded vein to mine, imbued with all the Jodorowskesque imagery, themes and eccentricity that has endeared him to adventurous audiences over the decades.

ENDLESS POETRY details Jodorowsky’s life from the time he left the Chilean coastal town of Tocopilla for Santiago at the age of nine, through his decision to move to France when he was in his 20s. The younger Alejandro is played by The Dance of Reality star Jeremias Herskovitz; Adan Jodorowsky, the director’s youngest son, who also composed the film’s score, plays the more mature Alejandro. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father (played by Brontis Jodorowsky, Alejandro’s oldest son) the 20-year-old protagonist leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced to the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago. He meets Enrique Lihn (Leandro Taub) and Stella Diaz (Pamela Flores), two unknown poets who would become driving forces of twentieth century Hispanic literature. Told through Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language, 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 & directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Unrated. In Spanish with English subtitles. 128 mins.

“the most accessible movie [Jodorowsky] has ever made, and it may also be his best. It’s Felliniesque and moving... Yet more than any previous Jodorowsky opus, it’s also a work of disciplined and touching emotional resonance”. – Variety
