This poetic and deeply moving documentary from Chilean director Patricio Guzman combines two subjects you would never think would go together - the trauma of military dictatorship and astronomy. Chile’s government of the '70s, led by Pinochet, saw many imprisoned in a concentration camp in the Atacama Desert, with the bodies of "the disappeared" buried in the surrounding expanse - where their relatives still search for bones today. The driest place on Earth, it’s also favoured by archaeologists and astronomers - and it’s here Guzman looks for answers to humanity's mysteries in the hope of healing his nation’s wounds.
