Death of Pablo Neruda

Ariel Dorfman's story about the death of Chile’s greatest poet, Pablo Neruda, and how his funeral became a powerful act of resistance against the brutal Pinochet dictatorship. Film by Ram Devineni. Watch for free at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_88Z-jHNbG8

Online Summer 2021 Ginsberg’s Karma is an insightful and entertaining look at a transformative phase in the poet Allen Ginsberg’s life -- his first trip to India in 1962 would transform him into America’s first hippie. While in India, he experimented with mind-altering drugs, spiritualism, and became a political activist. The documentary follows poet Bob Holman as he travels to India to piece together Ginsberg’s life there, and interviews many of the writers who knew him during his trip. Ginsberg’s adventures and what he experienced in India are the bridge between the Beat generation of the 1950s to the hippie counterculture of the 1960s in America.
