Join us for an exciting evening, featuring the screening of Alejandro Jordorowsky’s film, “Endless Poetry,” presented by the Peekskill Film Festival. There will be a Q & A session following the film with Mick Gochanour. The film will be followed by the opening reception for our new media exhibition, Bleeding Edge, presented in the upstairs mezzanine gallery in collaboration with Peekskill’s Art Industry Media initiative. See below for the full event list, and more about the Art Industry Media initiative!
Endless Poetry continues Jodorowsky’s intensely personal journey of growing up in 1940s Chile. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, the 20 year old Jodorowsky 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, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra, all unknown at the time, but who would later become driving forces of twentieth 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. Continuing the autobiographical story he began in The Dance of Reality, Endless Poetry is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing ones life forever, written by a man who has dedicated his existence to creating spiritual and artistic awareness, told through Jodorowskys unique surreal and psychedelic visual language.
