The vast Andean mountain range (‘Cordillera’ in Spanish) runs right through the heart of Chile, home country of the great documentarian Patricio Guzman. He returns with the third in a beautiful trilogy following Nostalgia for the Light and Pearl Button, meditating on his country’s turbulent history in the shadow of the Cordillera, which for Chilean citizens is everywhere and still an unknown territory. Forced to leave his home during the military dictatorship forty years ago, Guzman has never given up dissecting his country, its culture and politics, the legacy of oppression and those brave enough to resist.
