The third installment of Patricio Guzmán's series of documentaries, Nostalgia for the Light (screened at KFF in 2013) and The Pearl Button. Guzmán left Chile more than 40 years ago when the military dictatorship took over but he never stopped thinking about a country, a culture, and a place on the map that he never forgot.

The film is about the long strip of Andean mountains that runs between Chile and Argentina and that in ways both geographic and figurative separates it from the rest of the world. At the start of the film, and throughout, Samuel Lahu's breathtakingly clear, detailed aerial photography gives us the cordillera, its clouds and skies from every conceivable angle.

Guzmán looks like a plausible rival for the Attenborough school of nature documentary
Sight And Sound

A stunning achievement in the cinema of the hidden pattern and the startling, unexpected connection.
