Nostalgia for the Light

[12a]

Chile, Germany, France 2012, 94 mins
Director: Patricio Guzman

Patricio Guzmán (THE BATTLE FOR CHILE, SALVADOR ALLENDE, THE PINOCHET CASE), one of the legends of documentary, presents his visionary masterpiece for our times, set in Chile's Atacama Desert.

There, people search the past to understand the present: while women comb through the sands for remains of loved ones who 'disappeared' during Pinochet's regime, astronomers peer into the cosmos to solve the riddle of the beginning of life.
