Nostalgia de la luz (Nostalgia for the Light) (2010) / Patricio Guzmán

Nostalgia de la luz (Nostalgia for the Light) (2010) / Patricio Guzmán

這是一部將宇宙與人類歷史連繫起來的紀錄片。片中出現兩夥不約而同對生命抱有執著的人:一群天文學家努力尋找浩瀚宇宙的起源;另一群婦女則在智利的阿塔卡馬沙漠(Atacama Desert)找尋當年受到智利獨裁者皮諾契特(Augusto Pinochet)的暴力鎮壓而喪失性命的親人的屍駭。

當年在獨裁政權下喪命的人部份被埋在此「亂葬崗」。

當年的遇難者的具體數目至今仍不詳。片中的婦女依然鍥而不捨,即使只找到零碎的人骨,或是親人的遺物,對她們來說已經彌足珍貴。

以星喻人。死後的我們化作天上繁星,守護地上的人。

人類的存活於宇宙是何其微小,但人類因殺戮而造成的傷害卻大得讓人難以釋懷。難忘其中一名被訪的天文學家說道:”The present does not exist. It is an illusion.” 如果所謂現在不過是我們自以為的假象,那麼過去和未來又是甚麼?記憶會隨死者一同埋葬,但留給在世者無限的思念。

“Those who have a memory are able to live in the fragile present moment.
Those who have none don’t live anywhere.”

we will all be stars someday.
