Back for one more week!  From the mind of visionary artist and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky comes his latest sublime work of autobiography filtered through symbolism, Poesia sin fin (Endless Poetry).

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 (Jodorowsky’s previous film) 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.

“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
