NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT

by Patricio Guzmán. 2010. 90 min.

"I am convinced that memory has a gravitational force. It is constantly attracting us." 

Chilean master Patricio Guzmán travels 10,000 feet above sea level to the driest desert on earth, where the sky is so translucent that it allows astronomers to see the boundaries of our universe. The Atacama Desert climate also keeps human remains intact: pre-Columbian mummies; explorers and miners; and the remains of disappeared political prisoners. Women sift the desert soil for the bones of their loved ones, while archaeologists uncover traces of ancient civilizations and astronomers examine the most distant and oldest galaxies. Melding celestial and earthly quests, Nostalgia for the Light is a gorgeous, moving, and deeply personal odyssey. 

We're thrilled to welcome members of the Amateur Astronomers Association to the Arverne Cinema, where they will set up telescopes for stargazing.
