Altiplano

country:
Canada, Chile

Filmed in the Andean Mountains in the traditional lands of the Atacameño, Aymara, and Calchaquí-Diaguita in Northern Chile and Northwest Argentina, ALTIPLANO takes place within a geological universe of ancestral salt flats, volcanic deserts, and coloured lakes. Fusing earth with sky, day with night, heartbeat with mountain, and mineral with iridescent cloud, ALTIPLANO reveals a vibrating landscape in which a bright blue sun forever threatens to eclipse a blood-red moon.

 

This film was chosen by Pablo Álvarez Mesa, director of BICENTENARIO, as part of our series Cinéastes cœur à cœur. The screening will be followed by a discussion between the two filmmakers.
