Endless Poetry

Chile  2hr8min   Drama/Fantasy  Rated R

IThrough renowned father of the midnight movies Alejandro Jodorowsky’s intensely personal lens, ENDLESS POETRY tells the story of his years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940′s. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, the 20 year-old Alejandro Jodorowsky (Adan Jodorowsky), leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago where he meets Enrique Lihn (Leandro Taub), Stella Diaz Varín (Pamela Flores), Nicanor Parra (Felipe Rios), all unknown at the time, but who would later become driving forces of twentieth century Hispanic literature.

“In its mix of the absurd and the beautiful, Endless Poetry puts into images the sweeping emotions of Jodorowsky’s big, beating heart.” – Sean P. Means, Salt Lake Tribune
