by Pablo Larraín Gala Premieres

Chile, the year is 1948. With the onset of the Cold War, President Gonzalez Videla’s political policies become increasingly right wing. The world-renowned poet Pablo Neruda, who despite fame and fortune is committed to communism, must flee underground after publicly denouncing the president. Police officer Oscar is given the task of arresting him, but Neruda remains one step ahead at all times. In the same manner as Neruda’s protagonists, Oscar, the film’s unreliable narrator, reveals his version of the hunt for the famous poet. However, there is a minor problem: the story can have only one hero, and Oscar refuses to settle for a supporting role… Pablo Larraín brilliantly stages this unusual biopic about Chile’s most famous personality.
