Synopsis:

The movie represents a continuation, or in the words of director, diptych to his previous installment Nostalgia for the light (Nostalgia de la Luz), whereby Guzmán explored themes such as memories and historical past, particularly the history of “losers” compared to winners. In this particular movie, he documented the settlement of an area in Chile, better known as Fire land (Tierra del Fuego), including some of the last surviving descendants of the original tribes of Alacalufe and Yaghan.

Biography:
