This documentary explores the mystical creative outposts of the Southern California Deserts, from ''Salvation Mountain'' in Slab City to the famous Desert X installations of the Coachella Valley.
Delve into the life and work of American abstract impressionist artist, Miriam Beerman.
With a career spanning over six decades, Miriam Beerman's art is a striking exploration of dark and compelling works of expressionist art. Drawing inspiration from the horrific events of The Holocaust, the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, biblical plagues, and tragic events in her personal life, Beerman strove to 'express the chaos' she perceived around her.
This documentary visits a 90-year-old Miriam, battling a descent into dementia, to reflect on her life and work. Featuring interviews with contemporaries, art experts, and extensive interviews with the artist herself, this documentary is a beautiful celebration of a profoundly empathetic artist.
