Working Through Matter Film Series | Nostalgia for the Light

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| free

Can stuff help us glimpse the spatially and temporally inaccessible? This Chilean documentary simultaneously follows two investigations in the massive Atacama desert: that of outer space, through giant telescopes taking advantage of the desert aridity, and that of women digging through the earth in search of bone fragments of loved ones disappeared by Pinochet’s dictatorial regime.

Film Series presented by the Wolf Humanities Center and the Cinema and Media Studies Program in collaboration with Lightbox Film Center.

Part of the Wolf Humanities Center 2018-19 Forum on Stuff.
