You know how I periodically talk about not loving poetry? I shall now shut up.
This is “Preguntas Hermosas,” a stunningly-animated poetry mashup of “Clenched Soul” by Pablo Neruda and “Under the Harvest Moon” by Carl Sandburg. The film is about the remembrance of love and loss and about acceptance, and it’s tenderly and movingly handled throughout. Even the subtitles are perfectly timed for effect.
“Love, with little hands
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories.
And asks you
Beautiful unanswerable questions.”
Excerpt from “Under the Harvest Moon” by Carl Sandburg
