Santiago de Chile, during the thrilling years of the 40s and the 50s. “Alejandrito” Jodorowsky, aged twenty, decides to become a poet against the will of his family. He is introduced in the inner circle of the artistic and intellectual avant-garde of the time and meets Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz, Nicanor Parra and many other promising but anonymous young writers who will become the masters of Latin America’s modern literature. Totally immersed in this world of poetic experimentation, they live together as few
have dared to live before: sensually, authentically, freely, madly.

Director’s biography
Alejandro Jodorowsky, born in Chile in 1929, moves to Paris in 1953, where together with Fernando Arrabal and Roland Topor he founds the theater collective “Panic Movement”. It is the cinema which brings him fame, however, thanks to cult films such as El topo (1970), which reached an international audience, The Holy Mountain (1973) and Santa sangre(1989). Alongside filmmaking, Jodorowsky still cultivates his passion for Psychomagic and tarot cards, which are a recurrent inspiration for his writing and his graphic novels.

Critic’s Word:

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ‘Endless Poetry’ is the most accessible movie he has ever made, and it may also be the best. It’s Felliniesque and moving.
Owen Gleiberman, Variety

The final sequences about loss, and art as a “cure” (in Jodorowsky’s own words), are heart-wrenchingly powerful.
Ed Franki, The Film Stage
Faithful to his grotesque style, the filmmaker is much more contained and lucid than in previous films, making this a much more aproachable movie.
Alberto Sáez Villarino, El antepenúltimo mohicano
