TIFF 2010: NOSTALGIA DE LA LUZ (NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT, 2010)—The MUBI Interview With Patricio Guzmán

In terms of Chilean filmmaking, this has been a great year for me as an interviewing journalist. First, I had the opportune pleasure of conversing with Miguel Littin (Dawson Island, 10, 2009) earlier this year at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and then had that welcome opportunity bookended at this year's TIFF when I was given time to converse with Patricio Guzmán (Nostalgia For the Light, 2010). Two Chilean masters in one year!! My thanks to Sylvia Savadjian of Icarus Films for facilitating a time and place in Toronto to sit down to talk with Patricio Guzmán, to Patricia Beiger for her attentive translations, and to Danny Kasman and MUBI for optioning the transcript.
