Master director Patricio Guzmán travels 10,000 feet above sea level to the driest desert on earth for this remarkable documentary. Here, the sky is so translucent that it allows astronomers to see the boundaries of our universe. Yet the Atacama Desert climate also keeps human remains intact: pre-Columbian mummies; explorers and miners; and the remains of disappeared political prisoners. Women sift the desert soil for the bones of their loved ones, while archaeologists uncover traces of ancient civilizations and astronomers examine the most distant and oldest galaxies. Melding celestial and earthly quests, NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT is a gorgeous, deeply moving, and personal odyssey into astronomy, archeology, geology and human rights.
NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT was named as one of  the Top Ten Best Movies of 2010 by Sight & Sound.

DVD and Blu-ray include 5 short related films by
Patricio Guzmán further exploring Chile and astronomy.
