    What an elegant way to connect two extremely different kinds of searches! Beautiful 8 years 6 months ago

    Beautiful and harrowing documentary which manages to draw together the seemingly disparate strands of astronomy, archaeology and political atrocities - and it does so superbly. The Atacama desert in Chile is the driest place on earth and so also has the clearest skies allowing high powered telescopes to look further into the solar system. It was also the site of Pinochet's death camps and the place where thousands of prisoners were "disappeared". Guzman's film is by turns poetic and awe-inspiring, thoughtful and upsetting, and is highly recommended. 8 years 11 months ago
