NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT

Documentary Screening

Thursday, August 30th, 6:30pm


A free screening of Nostalgia for the Light by Patricio Guzmán will be shown at the Library on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 6:30 pm.

Chile’s remote Atacama Desert, 10,000 feet above sea level, provides stunningly clear views of the heavens. But it also holds secrets from the past in its arid soil: human remains, from pre-Columbian mummies to the bones of political prisoners "disappeared" during the Pinochet dictatorship. In this otherworldly place, earthly and celestial quests meld: Archaeologists dig for ancient civilizations, women search for their loved ones, and astronomers scan the skies for new galaxies. (90 minutes, subtitled).
Registration not required for this free event. This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. More info at www.pbs.org/pov.
