Director Alison McAlpine's sublime non-fiction film takes us to Chile's Atacama Desert, one of the best places on our planet to explore and contemplate the splendour of the night sky. Incorporating interviews with planet hunters in Atacama's astronomical observatories and desert dwellers who share their evocative visions of the stars and planets with a contagious sense of wonder, Cielo drifts between science and spirituality, the arid land, desert shores, and lush galaxies, transporting us to a space within which we can ponder the infinite and unknown.
