Nostalgia de la luz (Nostalgia for the Light)
Streaming of the film by Patricio Guzmán
Nostalgia de la luz (Nostalgia for the Light, 2010) is a film about the distance between heaven and earth, between the light of the cosmos and human beings, as well as the mysterious comings and goings generated between them. Astronomers from around the world meet at Atacama Desert to observe the stars in Chile at an altitude of three thousand metres. The transparency of the sky here helps them to view the confines of the universe. The dry land below preserves human remains intact: mummies, explorers, adventurers, natives, miners and bones of the dictatorship’s political prisoners. A group of women search for their relatives among the rocks as the astronomers search for extraterrestrial life.
