Directed by Patricio Guzmán
The ocean contains the history of all humanity. The sea holds the voices of the Earth and those that come from outer space. Water receives impetus from the stars and transmits it to living creatures. Water, the longest border in Chile, also holds the secret of a mysterious button that was discovered in its seabed. Chile, with its 2,670 miles of coastline, the largest archipelago in the world, presents a supernatural landscape. In it are volcanoes, mountains and glaciers. In it are the voices of the Patagonian indigenous people, of the first English sailors and also those of its political prisoners. Some say that water has memory. This film shows that it also has a voice.

Encounters: Filmed During the Making of THE PEARL BUTTON
"The Pearl Button is a vivid, essential portal to understanding not only the heritage of a nation, but also the art of nonfiction cinema."
"Guzmán's reputation as one of the great documentarians will only be enhanced by The Pearl Button. It really is intelligent, magnificent film-making."
"This documentary holds every card in the pack, from geology to anthropology to the history of tribes and tyrants, and plays them like a master."
