The 100-ticket minimum has been met, so ENDLESS POETRY will officially screen on Monday, April 9 at 7:30pm. Thanks to everyone who bought tickets to make it happen!
ENDLESS POETRY (2016): Told through Alejandro Jodorowsky’s intensely personal lens, ENDLESS POETRY chronicles his years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940s. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, 20-year-old Alejandro (played by Adan Jodorowsky, Alejandro’s son) leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago where he meets Enrique Lihn (Leandro Taub), Stella Diaz Varín (Pamela Flores), and Nicanor Parra (Felipe Rios), who would later become driving forces of 20th-century Hispanic literature. Living with these inspirational artists, Jodorowsky’s exploration of his inner feelings takes him on a journey of sensual experimentation leading him to realize his innermost desires and passions.
