The film is a cinematic reverie on the intense beauty of the night sky as experienced in the Atacama Desert, Chile, one of the best places on our planet to explore and contemplate its splendor. This sublime nonfiction film drifts between science and spirituality, arid land, desert shores, and lush galaxies, expanding the limits of our earthling imaginations. Cielo transports us to a space, quiet and calm, from which we can ponder the infinite and the unknown. (2017, 77 min, digital)
