THE PEARL BUTTON

Double Feature with THE LOOK OF SILENCE

(2015) dir Patricio Guzmán [82 min; DCP]
The deeply political Chilean director Patricio Guzmán (Nostalgia for the Light) once again delves into both the recent and distant past of his country to uncover secrets. In THE PEARL BUTTON, Guzman turns his attention to Chile’s relationship with the sea – reflecting on the tragedy of both the abused indigenous people and those ‘disappered’ during the Pinochet regime.

“The Pearl Button is a vivid, essential portal to understanding not only the heritage of a nation, but also the art of nonfiction cinema.” – Kevin B. Lee, Indiewire

“Mesmerizing.” – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

“[Guzman’s] introspection finds a kind of justice through poetry, and shows how memory must always be a continuing process.” Nicolas Rapold, New York Times

“By turns lyrical, impressionistic and profound, the documentary ‘The Pearl Button’ requires patience but offers stirring rewards.” Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
