Description

Presented by the Wolf Humanities Center and the Cinema and Media Studies Program in collaboration with Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia.

Nostalgia for the Light / Nostagia de la Luz
(dir. Patricio Guzmán, 2010, 90 min.)

Can stuff help us glimpse the spatially and temporally inaccessible? This Chilean documentary simultaneously follows two investigations in the massive Atacama desert: that of outer space, through giant telescopes taking advantage of the desert aridity, and that of women digging through the earth in search of bone fragments of loved ones disappeared by Pinochet's dictatorial regime.

Film to be followed by conversation.



Working Through Matter is a program of the Wolf Humanities Center's 2018-19 Forum on Stuff. Screenings are free and open to the public.
