Nostalgia for the Light
When: February 25, 2011, 7pm
Director: Patricio Guzman (Spanish with subtitles, 90m, 2010)
The latest insightful cine-essay from Patricio Guzmán (The Battle of Chile) is a multilayered portrait of Chile's vast Atacama Desert, the driest place on the planet. On one level, the Atacama is a perfect scientific platform for astronomers and archaeologists, as the altitude and absence of humidity are ideal for exploring the firmament, and aridity signifies a chance to recover model archaeological specimens. Guzmán, however, puts forward a disquieting conundrum: near the largest telescopes in the world, the essential human task of looking for dead loved ones—the "disappeared" from the Pinochet era—goes on quietly, unaided and unnoticed.
