Rivertown Film presents Neruda.
This biopic about the hot-blooded Chilean poet and leftist politician Pablo Neruda facing an emerging dictatorship in Chile illuminates the endless struggle between political authority and the creative imagination. In 1948, Neruda is engaged in a rhetorical war with Chile’s president, who is moving from left to right. Neruda and his wife go on the run when the president bans the Communist Party, and they are pursued by a police inspector determined to track down the country’s most famous fugitive.
Stay for a discussion (and perhaps a poem) with poet and St. Thomas Aquinas College literature professor Gerald McCarthy.
