Theatrical Bio-pic based on the life of Nobel Laureate Pablo Neruda
NERUDA is an epic portrayal of Pablo Neruda’s life in exile, in the form of a political thriller. In 1948 Neruda risked his own life by confronting the corrupt President of Chile who then deprived him of his seat in the Senate and ordered his arrest. In great peril, the exiled poet moved from place to place in Chile, finally crossing the Andes Mountains escaping to Argentina. His fugitive adventure lead him to the south of Chile, where he had lived during his formative years. The experiences of his childhood, first love, the link with his father, the lost memory of an absent mother, and the ancient rituals of southern Chile start to appear in Neruda’s poetry with great intensity. Those writings, together with his fundamental books such as “Canto General”, recount the different episodes of Neruda’s life that shaped him as a human being and a poet. NERUDA brings this celebrated his story of courage and passion alive.
