Nostalgia de la luz (2010)

Chile’s dry Atacama desert houses a multitude of observatories, all filled with the intricate, fascinating machinery of telescopes. Director Patricio Guzmán’s own passion for the stars enables him to thoughtfully and intelligently connect astronomy and politics, past and present, the calcium of celestial and terrestrial bodies. Soft-spoken and mildly ironic, this examination of different buried secrets uses history, archaeology, and geology in a mental search that bridges time, matter, and mind.

Lyrical, reasoning, occasionally longueur-ridden. In my book of memory and loss.
