The second chapter of Jodorowsky's magical realist autobiography

With ENDLESS POETRY, Alejandro Jodorowsky quite literally starts where THE DANCE OF REALITY ended. This part of his magical realist autobiography charts his formative years as an aspiring poet in 1940's and 50's Santiago. The collective unconscious frequently breaks through into physical reality in Jodorowsky's work and thus it's only fitting that his autobiography be filled with devils, dead people and metatextual interventions. With beautiful photography by Christopher Doyle, ENDLESS POETRY is a deeply personal film from one of the truly great living auteurs.
