Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Endless Poetry

Endless Poetry

Director: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Writer: Alejandro Jodrowsky

Chilean auteur Alejandro Jodorowsky has been incredibly productive since breaking his twenty-three year hiatus in filmmaking with 2013’s The Dance of Reality—he appeared as the subject of a documentary on his failed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune the same year and has also published a successful comic Showman Killer, about to release its second volume. The energetic director funded his latest project, Endless Poetry, via a Indiegogo campaign, a co-production between Chile, Japan, and France that sees the continuation of the autobiographical elements in The Dance of Reality. Filming commenced in July with cinematographer Christopher Doyle on board.

Cast: Brontis Jodorowsky, Pamela Floris, Adan Jodorowsky

Production Co.: Satori Films, Uplink Co., Le Soleil Films

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic) TBD (international).

Release Date: With Jodorowsky last appearing in the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, we’re hoping to see his latest invited back to the sidebar.
