Drifting beautifully between science and spirituality, CIELO is a love letter to the night sky as experienced in Chile's Atacama Desert, one of the best places on the planet to explore and contemplate its splendor. Planet hunters in the Atacama's astronomical observatories and the desert dwellers who work the land and sea share their evocative visions of the stars and planets, their mythical stories and existential queries with remarkable openness and a contagious sense of wonder.
