“I was fortunate enough to grow up under the inspiring sky of northern Chile, which at night feels so close that -in the words of the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda- “I was able to touch the nocturnal vault”. This feeling is beautifully and accurately captured in this documentary by Alison McAlpine.”
– Maurice Bitran, CEO, Ontario
Science Centre

“I am prepared to beat this drum particularly hard for Alison McAlpine’s Cielo. You need to lock yourself in the dark with it.”
– Norm Wilner NOW

“Affording viewers a trip to the Chilean desert to gaze up at the crystal-clear sky, “Cielo” is a rapturous act of cinematic contemplation.”
– Nick Shager, Variety

“Escapism? Isn’t the world’s noise, chaos, anxiety and nonsense what we’re trying to escape? Which brings us to Cielo, a serene, existential
experience from the Canadian filmmaker Alison McAlpine, who takes to Chile’s Atacama Desert to look both skyward and inward.”
– Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail
