Pablo Neruda’s “The Me Bird” Sings from the Afterlife

This beautiful animated video, titled “The Me Bird”, created by Bazilian studio 18bis, was inspired by the late Chilean poet Pablo Neruda’s poem of the same name. Apart from being recognized as one of the greatest Latin American poets of the 20th century, Neruda has made international headlines lately, as his body is set to be exhumed and autopsied by Chilean authorities on April 8, 40 years after his death. The exhumation was ordered by Chilean judge Mario Carroza, in response to intelligence that Neruda had been poisoned by the former Pinochet regime, instead of dying from prostate cancer as previously believed.
