The Me Bird

The Me Bird - Pablo Neruda

Inspirée d’un très beau poème de Pablo Neruda, ce film « The Me Bird » est une superbe création en stop-motion basée sur la technique du pochoir. Une inspiration artistique magnifique réalisée par le studio brésilien 18bis.

The Me Bird

I am the Pablo Bird,

bird of a single feather,

a flier in the clear shadow

and obscure clarity,

my wings are unseen,

my ears resound

when I walk among the trees

or beneath the tombstones

like an unlucky umbrella

or a naked sword,

stretched like a bow

or round like a grape,

I fly on and on not knowing,

wounded in the dark night,

who is waiting for me,

who does not want my song,

who desires my death,

who will not know I'm arriving

and will not come to subdue me,

to bleed me, to twist me,

or to kiss my clothes,

torn by the shrieking wind.

That's why I come and go,

fly and don't fly but sing:

I am the furious bird

of the calm storm.

-  Pablo Neruda


  1. Magnifique, vraiment - le poème et le film! The style of the animation matches the movement through life and along with it Neruda's verse very well ~ thank you for sharing : )
