Film screening: Pablo Neruda: The Poet's Calling
Pablo Neruda: The Poet’s Calling is a 30-minute excerpt from director Mark Eisner’s documentary-in-progress about the Chilean poet and Nobel laureate. Described as “an artistic portrait of Pablo Neruda’s potent poetry, social activism, and monumental yet fallible life,” this is the first feature-length, English-language documentary on the revered poet and statesman.
The screening will be followed by an interactive conversation with Eisner and Conspirare’s Artistic Director Craig Hella Johnson. Eisner will be signing copies of his best-selling book The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems afterwards.
