Neruda’s “The Me Bird”

Check this out–a visual interpretation of Pablo Neruda’s poem, “The Me Bird”, by graphics studio 18bis in Rio de Janeiro. The animated short is composed of frames all hand-cut from paper, and it’s absolutely enchanting. As the studio explains the imagery, “The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom. A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer.” It’s wonderful–I know you’ll like it!
