wed, 14 Es Hora de Jardín /It's the Hour of the Garden
7:00 pm FREE Cultivating art-activism in the spirit of Neruda.
Panel of poets, artists, and activists moderated by author/educator, Alejandro Murguía.
Panel: Poet Laureate devorah major, Jack Hirschman, James Lerager, Leslie Scalapino, etc.

While Neruda is known in the U.S. as a writer of love poems, a tribute to his work must acknowledge him as a life-long activist. In the '40s he was exiled from Chile for accusing his president of selling out to the US and oppressing workers and communists. In the year 2004, we explore the role of
the writer and the artist in the face of the violence of an unjustified war, attacks on civil rights, and a government favoring private interests over the social well being of its country. Es Hora de Jardín , features a dialogue among poets, artists, and activists in the spirit of Neruda, to
encourage a call for social change.

8:30 pm $15 ¡PABLO NERUDA! ¡PRESENTE!

"¡PABLO NERUDA! ¡PRESENTE! "  a co-presentation
by Latino Film Festival; a new documentary film, directed by Mark Eisner, with narration by Isabel Allende

Give me silence, water, hope.
Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes.
Fasten your bodies to mine like magnets.
Come to my veins and my mouth.
Speak through my words and my blood.
-- Pablo Neruda

The Festival begins on July 12th, 2004, when the poet would have turned 100. Please spread this information to all your friends in the SF Bay Area who love peace and art.
