Nostalgia for the Light

Monday, February 17, 2020

Guzmán’s (The Battle of Chile) film is a meditation on memory, history and eternity. Chile’s remote Atacama Desert, 10,000 feet above sea level, provides stunningly clear views of the heavens. But it also holds secrets from the past—preserved corpses, from pre-Columbian mummies to recent explorers, miners and disappeared political prisoners. In this otherworldly place, earthly and celestial quests meld: archaeologists dig for ancient civilizations, women search for their dead and astronomers scan the skies for new galaxies.

Special screening of Patricio Guzmán’s Chile Trilogy on Mon Feb 17, with screenings of Nostalgia for the Light (2010) at 10:35am, The Pearl Button (2015) at 12:20pm and The Cordillera of Dreams (2019) at 1:55pm. Tickets are available individually, or a discounted ticket package for all three films is available for $24 general admission / $18 for IFC Center Members.
