Zabriskie Point

Our friday inspiration: Michael Antonioni's 1970 film "Zabriskie Point". 

Set in Los Angeles and the stunning high desert area of Death Valley, its release was a colossal failure commercially. But in today's cultural climate, these dreamy counterculture characters, with their revolutionary aspirations, are captivating. 

But the most stunning aspect of the movie are the breathtaking visions of the American desert, and watching the film evoked the feelings of nostalgia and wonder that are expressed in episode 6 of season 1 of En Route, "Desert Dreams".
