Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Cannes Film Festival, master filmmaker Patricio Guzmán’s “The Cordillera of Dreams” completes his trilogy (with “Nostalgia for the Light” and “The Pearl Button”) on the relationship between historical memory, political trauma, and geography in his native country of Chile. The imposing Andes run the length of the country’s Eastern border. At once protective and isolating, magisterial and indifferent, this Cordillera serves as an enigmatic focal point around which Guzmán contemplates the enduring legacy of the 1973 military coup d’état. Unflinching in its presentation of contemporary Chile, “The Cordillera of Dreams” moves beyond despair and looks towards the possibilities of political change by linking the ideological struggles of the past with the inequalities of the present.

This film will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles.

Available through April 30, 2021
