Nostalgia de la luz

Celebration of Lives

(France, Chile, Spain / 2010 / 90’)

In the Atacama Desert in Chile, scientists are scanning the sky, archaeologists are probing the ground for traces of pre-Columbian civilizations. Between them, a third research front: the relatives of the desaparecidos slaughtered under the Pinochet regime, searching for the remains of their loved ones. A film about memory, of poignant beauty and heartfelt condemnation.
