"An extraordinary film about the unknown and the unknowable."—Sight & Sound

Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzman is best known for his series of indispensable films that document the history and legacy of dictator Augusto Pinochet's brutal regime (1973 to 1990). In Nostalgia for the Light, Guzman continues his excavation of his country's recent past. He journeys to Chile's Atacama Desert, home to some of the world's largest telescopes and, it is speculated, to the remains of many executed political prisoners. Guzman poignantly connects an astronomer’s search for celestial bodies with the search by a handful of women for the remains of loved ones beneath the desert's arid terrain. (90 mins., video)
