The Pearl Button (Chile / 2015)
The Pearl Button is a 2015 Chilean documentary film. It was screened in the main competition section of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival where it won the Silver Bear for Best Script. It won the Lumières Award for Best Documentary at the 21st Lumières Awards.
The film is part of a triptych with Nostalgia for the Light and potentially a third film focusing on the Andes, exploring familiar Guzmán themes such as memory and the historical past, particularly of that of the history's "losers" rather than victors, as it documents the settlement of Chile’s Tierra del Fuego, including some of the last surviving descendants of the original Alacalufe and Yaghan inhabitants.
