Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

In the early 1960s, dancer-choreographer Marta Becket fled the maddening crowd of New York to start the Amargosa Opera House in the middle of death valley. This documentary, directed by Todd Robinson, charts how her early career in New York progressed, her complicated relationship with her loving though dependant mother, and her ultimate artistic liberation in Death Valley. This film was a finalist for a 1999 Academy Award Nomination.
