Featuring the acclaimed Gael Garcia Bernal, this is the story of Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, and the persecution he suffered from an emerging dictatorship in his home country in the late 1940s. The film casts the darkness of Chile’s later, bloodier period of military rule, and the political uncertainties of the Latin America’s present. Sponsored by HiGSA and free to the general public. The Spanish Film Club series was made possible with the support of Pragda, SPAIN arts & culture, and the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain.
