Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
