This summer I finally had the opportunity to go to the Integratron for a sound bath/healing and it was one of the most refreshing and uplifting experiences I have had in a vey long time.  So when word got out that there was a cool movie screening presented by HDTS happening at the Integratron this weekend I had to share.  Especially so because these films were filmed in, and centered around, the desert.

High Desert Test Sites, the Integratron, hula hoops, and desert dance offs…oh my!  What is not to love about this?!?!

Please join us on August 30, 2014 for a very special screening of Night Sky, a film written and directed by Alison O’Daniel, with live accompaniment (musicians TBA). O’Daniel shot this film in Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, and Landers in 2009-2010, and we are thrilled to present it in one of the very locations in which it was filmed – the Integratron!

Night Sky has parallel overlapping stories: two girls – Cleo and Jay – travel through the desert while a group of contestants compete in a current-day dance marathon. A small hula hoop serves as a window between worlds, hovering unnoticed in the midst of the marathon contestants and simultaneously hanging in the desert air. Sound bleeds between the locations, drawing attention to parallel series of events, while locations collapse into one another and places formerly encountered continue to announce their presence.

Saturday, August 30, 2014, 8PM
The Integratron
Landers, CA

Space is limited – reserve your ticket here! ($10 general admission, $6 high desert residents)
