Join us for the launch event of our Summer Season
The Pearl Button | Dir. Patricio Guzman | Chile | 2015 | 1hr 22
In this new documentary the craft of the renowned filmmaker Patricio Guzman invites us to experience both time and space as they emerge in human history, in simultaneously linear and non-linear ways. It focuses on events that have occurred along the magnificent and wild 600 mile Chilean coast line. The camera follows investigators as they dive into the depths of the ocean to find bodies of those tossed into the sea by the brutal Pinochet regime. Indigenous people who have always made their home there speak of how they are now forbidden from setting sail in their small boats. But weare emotionally held during these harrowing revelations by reflections on the power of the cosmos and the life giving properties of water.
