Nostalgia for the Light - trailer


The renowned Chilean documentarian Patricio Guzmán goes to the Atacama Desert – one of the highest, driest places on earth – to examine both the work of astronomers who search the skies to understand our universe and that of the relatives of Pinochet-era disappeared who search the sands for the bodies of their loved-ones. 90 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“The filmmaker’s masterpiece, an exquisitely filmed, poetically written meditation on how past and present fuse in humanity’s most unresolved questions.”  — Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
