The story of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940s. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father the 20year-old Jodorowsky, played by Alejandro’s son Adán, leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago. His exploration of his inner feelings takes him on a journey of sensual experimentation, leading him to realise his innermost desires and passions. Endless Poetry is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever, told through Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language.
