Discover an otherworldly place where archaeologists dig, women search for bone, and astronomers scan the skies.´╗┐ Patricio Guzm├ín's Nostalgia for the Light airs Sunday, October 28, 2012 at 11 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11). Guzm├ín´╗┐ traveled to the Atacama Desert to talk to the astronomers who gaze into starlight for cosmic truth; the archeologists who dig to bring the truth of human history into the light; and the haunted relatives of the disappeared who still sift the parched ground for traces of a more recent history--the victims of Pinochet's dictatorship. Guzm├ín explores the deep motivations of each of these groups of seekers and the surprising ways their quests overlap.´╗┐
