Nostalgia for the Light

The Atacama desert in Chile, 10,000 feet above sea level and the driest place on earth, has ideal conditions for astronomy - but also for preserving bodies, including Pinochet's political prisoners. Astronomers scan the heavens while women search for their loved ones, in this beautiful but painful film.
