The Cordillera of Dreams

6 November 2023

2020, Patricio Gúzman, Chile-France, 84 minutes

“The Cordillera of Dreams gives visibility to the unseen. This extraordinary, poetic, political work is a heartfelt corrective to a mode of being that intentionally turns away; it encourages the viewer to look deeply at things that have been erased, overlooked, or, like the Cordillera, taken for granted. It brings into existence hidden histories as a way of better contextualising the past and better understanding the relationship between landscape and memory, which continues to shape the present.” —  Maria Delgado, British Film Institute
