Pilar lives in the south. She recently lost her father and is now on her own. María came to visit her, to keep her company and take a break from the boyfriend she's on the point of leaving. Neither has the wherewithal to comfort the other. Neither knows what she wants. They barely know what they don't want. They don't want to go back to their lives. They don't want to think about the future. They don't want to be alone. They don't want their holiday to end. A timber yard about to close, a horse and a dog, a few men, a little alcohol and the cold waters of the southern lakes.

In the Argentina of 1982, María Teresa is a teacher at the Colegio Nacional in Buenos Aires. When María Teresa, hounded by a slight, perhaps non-existent smell of tobacco, starts hiding in the boys' toilets to catch the smokers and have them punished, she gradually discovers a darkly exciting habit. Her eyes miss nothing. The eyes of the jailer, of the master... or perhaps of...
In the Argentina of 1982, María Teresa is a teacher at the Colegio Nacional in Buenos Aires. When María Teresa, hounded by a slight, perhaps non-existent smell of tobacco, starts hiding in the boys' toilets to catch the smokers and have them punished, she gradually discovers a darkly exciting habit. Her eyes miss nothing. The eyes of the jailer, of the master... or perhaps of a pervert.
Nostalgia de la luz / Nostalgia for the Light
Patricio Guzmán
France-Germany-Chile 
Nostalgia de la luz is a film about the distance between the sky and the earth, between light and human beings and the mysterious comings and goings arising between them. At a height of 3,000 metres, astronomers from all over the world gather in the Atacama Desert to observe the stars of northern Chile. Here, the transparency of the sky means that you can see to the very limits...
Nostalgia de la luz is a film about the distance between the sky and the earth, between light and human beings and the mysterious comings and goings arising between them. At a height of 3,000 metres, astronomers from all over the world gather in the Atacama Desert to observe the stars of northern Chile. Here, the transparency of the sky means that you can see to the very limits of the universe. Below, the dryness of the ground keeps human remains intact forever: mummies, explorers, miners, Indians and the skeletons of the political prisoners of the dictatorship. While the astronomers seek extraterrestrial life, a group of women move stones: they're looking for their relatives.
