Endless Poetry Fiction (2016): Chile’s Alejandro Jodorowsky Personal Film

Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky and set in the 1950s, Poesía Sin Fin (Endless Poetry Fiction) is the autobiographical account of the young Jodorowsky and his process of emancipation.

Breaking free from his merchant father’s stiffling authority, he asserts his uncontainable desire to become a poet, through an absolute artistic and amorous quest.

The film takes us through the poignant tale of a young man with a passion for freedom who discovers and explores without limitation the world of art and poetry until his definitive departure from Chile to France.

True to Alejandro CANNES_2016_posterJodorowsky’s principle under which Cinema is an absolute form of art, Poesía Sin Fin is an artistic manifest and a free, uncompromising poetic act unto itself.

Director Statement
“Endless Poetry reveals a young man who wants, above all, to find beauty in the world, in others, in himself, who wants to find a reason in his life. Cinema for us, for the artists, is not an industry; it’s not a business. We have to make cinema that heals. Cinema that is optimistic, happy, creative wonderful!” Alejandro Jodorowsky
