Director Patricio Guzman travels to the Atacama desert (regarded as the driest place on Earth) to explore the plateau which is now hub for astronomers, but was also a site which housed thousands of Augusto Pinochet's political prisoners. 

"The film's passionate insistence on remembrance lends it a moral as well as a metaphysical weight. Mr. Guzman's belief in eternal memory is an astounding leap of faith." - Stephen Holden, New York Times 

"A film of rare visual poetry that's simultaneously personal, political and philosophical, it's a genuine art film that's also unpretentious and easygoing." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
