DVD: Nostalgia For The Light (12)


An intensely moving documentary, set in the extraordinary lunar terrain of Chile's Atacama Desert, where the "translucency of the sky" was ideal for the country's impressive, 1970s astronomy programme.

However, this scorched landscape also bore witness to the deaths of Pinochet's political opponents in the Chacabuco Mines. A poetic, humane, and deeply scientific film.
