51th Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019

Poesía Sin Fin

Fortnight 2016, Feature film, 2h10

Synopsis

Endless Poetry portrays Alejandro Jodorowsky’s young adulthood, set in the 1940s and 50s, in the electric capital city of Santiago. There, he decides to become a poet and is introduced, by destiny, into the foremost bohemian and artistic circle of the time. He meets Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra and many others of the country’s young, promising and unknown artists who would later become the titans of Latin America’s literature.

Director

Alejandro Jodorowsky

Jodorowsky’s non-conformist, multidisciplinary work has generated a true cult-following by way of its symbolical, philosophical and esoteric depth. At age 87, his career overflows with the kind of iconoclastic imagery that questions, modifies and pushes forward our perception of art.
