DI­REC­TOR Pa­tri­cio Guzmán CAST Martin G. Calderon, Gabriela Pa­ter­ito, Emma Malig, Gabriel Salazar

This com­pan­ion documentary to the di­rec­tor’s Nos­tal­gia For The Light con­trasts the 19th-cen­tury cleans­ing of Chile’s in­dige­nous tribes with the bru­tal Pinochet regime. But while the vi­su­als are strik­ing, the po­etic mus­ings of Pa­tri­cio Guzmán’s voiceover un­der­mine his po­lit­i­cal fury.
