Storyline

A dynamic documentary on Latin America's most renowned poet, Pablo Neruda (1904-1973). Neruda was a public poet, statesman, activist, and Nobel Laureate who attained mythic stature in his lifetime. An incurable romantic, incorrigible womanizer, and unrepentant militant communist, Neruda's contradictions found poetic expression in an aching lyricism and potent political verse.

Quotes

Ariel Dorfman: And so he became a poet of peace. In great measure. And I think that's how we must remember him, of love and peace and of fury as well because threre's a great deal of anger in Neruda because of the waste, the way we have wasted our planet. The way we have devastated the lives of so many people. And that hurt him enormously. And yet, he was always full of the most extraordinary optimism.
