La isla - Archive einer Tragödie La isla - Archives of a Tragedy

Uli Stelzner

Germany/Guatemala, Human Rights Documentary, 2010 85 min, HDV, Color/Black & White Spanish with English subtitles

 

At the end of the 20th century, members of the Guatemalan police and armed forces killed and abducted thousands of people. However this unprecedented, modern genocide goes unpunished. To this day, a system of terror and impunity relies on silence and a lack of evidence. But in July 2005 an explosion in the Guatemalan capital led to the discovery of the archive of Guatemala's National Police. "The Island," as it was known then, was the secret prison of the notorious national police squads. Millions of documents were uncovered that helped trace a story of tragedy and inconceivable atrocities, and revealed that a young generation of archive workers was willing to free their country from the suffocating grip of its own history.

Jean, a middle-aged Haitian professor, is always on the move looking for work.

Nostalgia de la luz Nostalgia for the Light

Patricio Guzmán

Chile/France/Spain/Germany, Documentary, 2010 90 min, HDCam, Color Spanish with English subtitles

 

Co-sponsored by Austin Film Society

Astronomers from all over the world gather in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile to observe the stars. Here, the transparency of the sky means that you can see to the very limits of the universe. Below the desert, the dryness of the ground keeps human remains intact forever: pre-Colombian mummies, explorers, miners, and the remains of disappeared political prisoners from Pinochet's dictatorship. Women sift the desert soil for the bones of their loved ones while archaeologists uncover traces of ancient civilizations, and astronomers examine the old and distant galaxies. Melding celestial and earthly quests, Nostalgia de la luz is a gorgeous, moving, and deeply personal odyssey. Named Best Documentary at the 2010 European Film Academy Awards.
