Nostalgia de la Luz (2010)

nostalgia-de-la-luz

Nostalgia de la Luz (Nostalgia for the Light) is part of an informal diptych (along with The Pearl Button (2015)) that studies the impacts of Pinochet’s dictatorship (1973-1990) on the lives of Chilean people. Guzmán researches time and space, by exploring the connection between seemingly differentiated sciences, such as astronomy, archaeology and history. Set in Atacama desert, one of the driest places on earth, this film is a journey to the past, in quest of some answers…

Guzmán has stated that he wishes to create a third part, about the lives of people who live in the Andes, that will complete his trilogy.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
