Coming Soon

Through the intensely personal lens of writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo, The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre) comes the story of his years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940s. Colorfully shot by ace cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love), it is replete with Jodorowsky’s wonderfully imaginative, surreal and psychedelic imagery. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, 20-year-old Alejandro (played appealingly by real life son Adan Jodorowsky) leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the eccentric bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago. Living with these inspirational artists, the young 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. (Partially subtitled)
