The Cordillera of Dreams La Cordinllera de los Sueños

Synopsis

In this stunning follow-up to his political reveries Nostalgia for the Light and The Pearl Button, venerable filmmaker Patricio Guzmán once again focuses on Chile’s topography as a metaphor for its past and present. Here, he spotlights the looming Andean mountain range that acts as both protector and dispassionate observer of the country’s traumas. Winner of Cannes’ top documentary prize, the film is a potent and poetic inquiry into national memory.

The Cordillera of Dreams serves above all as a wake-up call to the new generations, urging them to give Chile back its happy childhood.”
