Pablo Neruda

Posted 3.15.13

The short film "The Me Bird" is a visual interpretation of Neruda's poem of the same name, which ends: "That's why I come and go, / fly and don't fly but sing: / I am the furious bird / of the calm storm." 18bis, the graphics studion in Rio de Janeiro that created the film, explains the imagery: "The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom. A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer."
