This Saturday, August 24, at the Cinema of Casa Hass, the Cycle: “Writers” begins, with biographical films in homage to different writers of the world.
The first film to be screened is “Neruda”, by Chilean director Pablo Larraín, which had its premiere at Cannes in 2016.
After the outlaw of the Communist Party, the persecution of which Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) was a victim after the betrayal he suffered from President Gabriel González Videla, is described with creative freedoms.
Once he is charged as an insurgent, an obsessive police chief, Oscar Peluchonneau (Gael García Bernal), tracks him; but the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature plays with his pursuer.
“Neruda” is a film that invites reflection and a taste of how art, in this case poetry and cinema, can play with something that is considered as cold as politics.
The film is screened in its original language, Spanish. Free entry with limited space.
