Film: “Nostalgia for the Light”

Thursday, March 27 @ 6:30 pm

Chile’s Atacama Desert, with zero humidity and located 10,000 feet above sea level, draws astronomers from all over the globe to view the skies through the world’s largest telescopes with the hope of uncovering the secrets of the universe. But beneath the Atacama’s dry soil are preserved layers of human remains spanning the pre-Colombian era to the bodies of those “disappeared” after General Augusto Pinochet’s 1973 military coup. “Nostalgia for the Light” follows the stories of families searching for their loved ones, archeologists, and astronomers who converge in this otherworldly place. Presented in Spanish with English subtitles. In conjunction with Painting Borges: Philosophy Interpreting Art Interpreting Literature.
