One Room With A View
May 17, 2019
The most recent documentary by Patricio Guzmán explores and faces the past and the presen of Chile, looking at the heavens and turning down, towards the earth. Or, in this case, to the sea. [Full review in Spanish] Full Review
Cine Vértigo
Mar 8, 2017
Guzmán's predilection for naïve wide-eyed wonder weighs down his recent films, never eclipses the most striking feature of his work: the way in which dreamy musings and far-fetched speculations coexist with toughness, prickliness, and matter-of-factness Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Through Guzmán's unique lens, the history of the natives becomes a kind of ethereal reflection of the universe, irrevocably changed by colonialism and western invasion. Full Review
From the Front Row
Aug 6, 2019
Rating: 4/5 -- The Pearl Button is a piece of visual poetry that meanders along the waterways, coastline and history of Chile, coming into sharp and horrifying focus on the atrocities of Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship.

Product Description:

The ocean contains the history of all humanity. The sea holds the voices of the Earth and those that come from outer space. Water receives impetus from the stars and transmits it to living creatures. Water, the longest border in Chile, also holds the secret of a mysterious button that was discovered in it's seabed. Chile, with it's 2,670 miles of coastline, the largest archipelago in the world, presents a supernatural landscape. In it are volcanoes, mountains and glaciers. In it are the voices of the Patagonian indigenous people, of the first English sailors and also those of it's political prisoners. Some say that water has memory. This film shows that it also has a voice.
