Berlin: Jodorowsky Pens, Directs ‘Poetry’ (Exclusive)

Alejandro Jodorowsky is set to produce and direct “Endless Poetry,” the continuation of his latest film “The Dance of Reality,” which played at Cannes’ Directors Fortnight.

A Chilean-French-Japanese production, “Endless Poetry” is a fantasy-filled autobiographical tale based on the last chapters of Jodorowsky’s book “The Dance of Reality.”

Asai Takashi and Jodorowsky are producing via the director’s Paris-based outfit Satori Films. Moises Cosio at Chile’s Le Soleil Films is co-producing.  International sales are handled by Satori Films, which will start shopping the project at the European Film Market.

The film recounts Jodorowsky’s teenage years in Santiago,Chile, and chronicles his struggle to overcome family pressure and find his path as an artist and a poet. Jodorowsky emerged along with Enrique Linh, Nicanor Parra and Stella Diaz as one of the most influential poets of Chile in the 1940s.

“In my memories, my years in Chile had long been associated with suffering and loneliness… but today, at my 85 years of age I have not the least doubt that my encounter with poetry justifies my emergence in that country,” said Jodorowsky.

Budgeted in the $3 million to $5 million film will star Dante Jodorowsky, Adan Jodorowsky, Brontis Jodorowsky, Pamela Flores and Leandro Taub.

The producers will launch a crowdfunding campaign for “Endless Poetry” on Kickstarter on Feb. 
15. As part of the campaign, Jodorowsky will present the project on YouTube that same day at 3 p.m. Paris time.

Jodorowsky, who is also a composer, actor, mime, comic book writer, historian and psychotherapist, previously directed “El Topo” and “Holy Mountain.”
