Film Series: Zabriskie Point

1970. USA. Dir: Michelangelo Antonioni. With Mark Frechette. 111 min.


Campus activist Mark – alias “Karl Marx” – steals an airplane and embarks on a psychedelic trip through the desert with “a sweet, pot-smoking post-teenybopper of decent inclinations” (N.Y. Times). A soundtrack by Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia pairs with expansive landscape photography to paint a generation-defining portrait of the American counterculture.
