Best Documentary? Chilean Films About Stars And Pinochet

“Nostalgia for the Light,” Chilean director Patricio Guzman’s documentary that mixes celestial exploration with families searching for the remains of victims of the Pinochet regime, has been named Best Feature of 2011 by the International Documentary Association.
The award was handed out on Friday night during the IDA Awards ceremony at the Directors Guild in West Hollywood.
Typically, given a year in which there are no clear front-runners in the documentary awards race, Guzman’s film did not make the shortlist in the Oscars doc category. (FULL ARTICLE: Steve Pond, Reuters)
