IFI DOCFEST: THE PEARL BUTTON

PATRICIO GUZMÁN

EL BOTÓN DE NÁCAR

Book Tickets

IRISH PREMIERE

Master filmmaker Patricio Guzmán’s (Nostalgia for the Light) latest inventive documentary presents itself as a film fascinated with water and how Chile, with one of the longest oceanic coastlines, is a country beholden to it. From there, Guzmán illustrates, in poetic, essayistic style, key and brutal moments in Chilean history, addressing the slaughter perpetrated by European colonists and the dumping of the bodies of murdered political prisoners into the sea by Pinochet’s wretched regime, achieving an extraordinary balance in creating a film both artistically striking and purposefully political.

This event is screening as part of IFI Documentary Festival 2015 (September 23 – 27)
