Barstow, California

Running time: 76’

The documentary “Barstow, California” is recording life & landscape in the Mojave Desert. It's the 3rd film in the trilogy “The American West” (the other two films: “Nome Road System” & “Milltown, Montana”) about places in the sparsely populated areas of the American West. To the trilogy’s style of “landscape listening" is added the voice of Spoon Jackson (an internationally-acclaimed, Barstow-born prisoner/poet) reading passages from his autobiography dealing with his youth & life in the area.
