Nostalgia de la luz

Patricio Guzmán Chile, 2010

Richard Stopford's rating of the film Nostalgia for the Light

A beautiful and crushing documentary woven out of a complex fabric of conceits: the stars like the sand of the atamcama; bones like the surface of the planets, whose minerals they're made from; space and earth as sedimentations of the past, living on through a fleeting present; and the pain, and the peace, that can be found in our search through both. The binding gravity of the film being the aftermath of Pinochet.
