THE CORDILLERA OF DREAMS
DOC NYC, Biografilm, San Sebastian, Busan, Chicago
The continuation of the master documentarian’s exploration of Chile’s fraught history.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
An exploration of identity, history, and landscape by acclaimed Chilean director Patricio Guzmán. In his latest philosophical act of cinematic self-reflection, the Andean Cordillera mountain range becomes an ark where the most important poetic laws are stored, containing the ruins of the director’s childhood memories and the acts of police brutality and civil resistance that happened under Pinochet’s dictatorship. Spectacular aerial images bring us into the Cordillera and the troubled history it continues to witness.
