Endless Poetry

Following on directly from 2014’s The Dance of Reality, “Alejandrito” Jodorowsky, aged twenty, decides to become a poet against the will of his family. He is introduced in to 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, and madly. Screened in Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, the latest film from the Chilean master is perhaps his most accessible yet. Imbued with Fellinesque touches, this is a work of real charm and feeling.
