Love, With Little Hands

Animated Short Preguntas Hermosas

“Preguntas Hermosas”

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

  1. This comment does not relate to this particular article per se… But when I came across your blog name I wondered what OBT would be till i read and understood… It’s a fantastic thing to do this and so important to keep remembering that all it takes is a one small beautiful thing to make us smile again and breathe better!
