Nostalgia de la luz (Nostalgia for the Light)

Guzmán, Patricio (director/writer)
Publisher:  Icarus Films
Year Published:  2010  
Pages:  90 min  
In Chile's Atacama Desert, astronomers search the sky and explore the origins of the universe. Nearby, a group of women sift through the sand searching for body parts of loved ones murdered and dumped in the desert by the Pinochet dictatorship. The desert also holds the stories of pre-Columbian indigenous societies, 19th-century miners, and political prisoners. A meditation on astronomy, the past, memory, and persistence.
