Please, join us. Join us in the cultivation of poetry, the cultivation of the soul. Inspired by Pablo Neruda, we are working to amplify the power of poetry.
Our first major project is our documentary film on Pablo Neruda, and we need your help to finish it so people around the world can be inspired by the power of his poetry. We have finished principle production, needing just to create video sequences of four more of his poems. With that, we're ready to hire our editor to make a rough-cut, with which we'll get the funds to complete the whole project. But while we have just been awarded a major grant from Latino Public Broadcasting, this is a grassroots project. We've come this far by the help of so many individuals, and we need your help to keep the production running so we can cross the finish line and share this important film with the world.
From there, we have many other projects planned, including an illustrated book of some on Pablo's odes, and another of his Book of Questions, aimed for children and young adults. An anthology of Latin American poetry of resistance is also in the works. We want to bring Latin American poets to other continents to share their work, and so much more. For all this, we need your help. Please add your hands to our garden, to the cultivation of poetry, and become a member of Red Poppy today. And look at what you get along with your contribution!:
