«Patricio Guzmán’s cinema has been marked by his unique, critical and sharp look at our country’s society. Her filmography is full of historical works for our cinematography and our collective memory,» says Katherina Harder, Co-Director of REDFECI. «We are very happy to be able to count on this work in our festival and share it with the public, since it comes to close this trilogy that has allowed us to make a journey from north to south and from mountain range to sea, inviting us to a deep reflection on the history, present and future of our country.» Harder adds: «We deeply thank Patrick for participating in this work with us precisely today, in the midst of such an important and historic moment for Chile, ad portas del plebiscito, where as a festival we seek to contribute to rethought as a country through cinema».
«A fascinating exploration»
Released last year at the Cannes Film Festival, where she was honored with the Golden Eye Award for Best Documentary, the film «The Mountain Range of Dreams» closes the trilogy that Patricio Guzmán initiated with «Nostalgia of Light» (2010) and continued with «The Mother-of-Pearl Button» (2015). He now films what he calls «the immense backbone that reveals Chile’s past and recent history.» «The Mountains of Dreams» is a historical research, a film essay and an intimate and collective introspection of Chile.
Variety called it «a fascinating and allusive exploration of the cultural impact of Chile’s most spectacular geological element: its backbone of snowy mountains.»
