The Cordillera of Dreams
First screened in October 2019
Director: Patricio Guzmán. Documentary about the past and present of Chile, linking its topography to its history. Screenplay: Patricio Guzmán. Twitter Capsule:
Less poetic or complex than Guzmán's last two docs, but still a movingly restless ode and elegy to Chile.
