The Pearl Button
- FRANCE, CHILE, SPAIN / 2015 / 82 min
Director: Patricio Guzmán
Western Patagonia. This used to be home to native peoples who revered the water and the stars as signs of life. A single button links the European colonizers’ genocide of natives to the victims of the Chilean Pinochet Dictatorship. Memory lies in the depths of the sea, universe, and eternal space-time. Directed by Patricio Guzmán (Nostalgia for the Light).
