Patricio Guzmán left Chile more than 40 years ago when the military dictatorship took over the democratically-elected government, but he never stopped thinking about a country, a culture, and a place on the map that he never forgot. After covering the North in Nostalgia for the Light and the South in The Pearl Button, his shots get up-close with what he calls "the vast revealing backbone of Chile's past and recent history.Written by

The third part of Guzman trilogy still works like an open book of history, but of a more reasonable history. Through his personal experiences -not just political but in the whole as an observer- tries to explain the brutal Chilean Juda of Pinochet and and how it's still hovering above his beloved country. The documentary is shaped in the hands of its creator to become a warning, a very poetic warning, that uses the tradition of the land and the people as the only true factor of nation's reconstruction. Hope this documentary and its true meaning reach big audiences and spark a flame in our minds and lifestyles cause we still give in the wrong social systems.
