Neruda

  • Carbon Arc Cinema 1747 Summer Street Halifax, NS, B3H 3A6 Canada

dir. Pablo Larraín / Chile / 2016 / 107 minutes

It’s 1948 and the Cold War has reached Chile. In congress, Senator Pablo Neruda accuses the government of betrayal and is swiftly impeached by President Videla and Óscar Peluchonneau, a fictional police officer, is assigned to arrest the poet. Neruda tries to flee the country with his wife, but they are forced into hiding. In the struggle with his nemesis Peluchonneau, Neruda sees an opportunity to reinvent himself. He plays with the officer, leaving clues designed to make their game of cat-and-mouse more dangerous and more intimate. In this story of persecution, Neruda recognizes his own heroic possibilities: a chance to become both a symbol for liberty and a literary legend.
