Endless Poetry (original soundtrack LP)
15 of the 19 tracks contained in Endless Poetry: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack were composed and performed by Alejandro’s son Adan Jodorowsky (aka Adanowsky), who also stars in the film, portraying his own father as a young man. Multi-instrumentalist composer/arranger Jon Handelsman contributed four songs to the soundtrack. “Sueño sin fin” was composed and arranged by both Handelsman and Alejandro Jodorowsky (the filmmaker’s own contribution to Endless Poetry: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). Described by Variety as “a work of disciplined and touching emotional resonance,”Endless Poetry details Alejandro Jodorowsky’s life in his 20s. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, the protagonist leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced to the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago, Chile in the 1940s and 50s. He meets Enrique Lihn (Leandro Taub) and Stella Diaz (Pamela Flores), two unknown poets who would become driving forces of twentieth century Hispanic literature. Told through a unique surreal and psychedelic visual language, with a soundtrack to match, Endless Poetry is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever.
