Nostalgia for the Light

While astronomers flock to the Atacama desert to search the sky for clues to our origins, a group of women search the ground for the corpses of their loved ones…

This looks to be a thoughtful documentary… a piece of art even. I’m planning to watch it, somehow. It’s going to be interesting to see how the director, Patricio Guzman, juxtaposes the two seemingly unrelated topics – astronomy and the tragedy of political assassinations during the Pinochet era in Chile – together. Apparently its been well received at some of those artsy fartsy film festivals.
