The Cordillera of Dreams Unclassified 18+

Language: Spanish with English subtitles

Winning a Special Mention for Cannes’ coveted Golden Eye award for Documentary, the latest from Chilean master Patricio Guzmán completes his superb trilogy of personal and political reflection on his country’s landscape.

Having explored the north in Nostalgia for the Light (MIFF 2010) and the south in the The Pearl Button (MIFF 2015), Patricio Guzmán returns to his homeland to reckon with the mysteries of the immense, yet strangely unknowable “spine” of the nation: the vast, towering mountain range that closes it off from the rest of the world.

Of a contemplative piece with his sublime recent work, Guzmán’s latest explores the spectacular, snowcapped peaks while offering a poetic exploration of their cultural impact and the nation’s turbulent political history, fusing breathtaking imagery to trenchant revelations.

“Caps off an astonishing set of history-focused essay films … The trilogy represents one of the great artistic statements of the decade.” – CineVue
