Effortlessly ranging from the cosmic to the microscopic, Guzman explores Chile’s tortured history through many poignant interviews. Particularly moving is an elderly indigenous Patagonian woman, one of the last of a tribe of nomadic boat people whose language will soon disappear. Nobody else really makes films like this that express deeply humanist, spiritual ideas so effortlessly.
