Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 197: Mon July 16

Nostalgia for the Light (Guzman, 2010): Renoir, Rio and BFI Southbank cinemas

This film was highlighted here back in February but no apologies for returning to this brilliant documentary as it gets a proper release.

Time Out review:
'A rather wonderful essay film from the makers of the Battle of Chile, whose diverse concerns - astronomy, geology, archaeology, history, politics - probably shouldn't hang together but, thanks to his deft way with metpahor, do so to emotionally and intellectually resonant effect. An illuminating, fascinating and finally very moving meditation on time and place and the enduring importance of memory, curiosity, courage and conscience.'

Look at this brilliant trailer.
