Join the filmmaker for this feature-length documentary that explores Marshal South, an eccentric artist and author, and his wife Tanya, who, in 1930, fled civilization in pursuit of a simple back-to-nature lifestyle. For seventeen years they lived on a remote, waterless mountaintop in the California desert and raised three children. Marshal’s monthly articles and Tanya’s poetry in Desert Magazine chronicled life in the arid paradise for a growing national audience. The family survived the Great Depression and World War II, but isolation and betrayal eventually took their toll.

The film is 57 minutes long. Be sure to stay for the Q&A with co-presenters John McDonald, the filmmaker, and Bill Worden, who appears in the documentary.
