Described by Philip French in The Observer as “beautiful, painful, cerebral” and “a film to be seen, re-seen and pondered”, this documentary uses the barren landscape of Chile’s Atacama Desert to set the search of visiting archaeologists and astronomers for the secrets of the ancient past and the Universe against the struggle of the Chilean people to sift through the sand and uncover the horrors of the Pinochet regime in their more recent and more personal history.
