film profile] in the 70th Berlinale's Forum section, and now the film's production company, Caviar, and international sales agent, Czech firm Filmotor, have readied a new trailer for the film.
In the Mojave Desert, not far from Los Angeles, lies the unfinished city of California City. Lashay T Warren (25) left behind his turbulent past in LA to build a new life within this grid of thousands of crumbled streets.
“It started with an anecdote, a story we picked up somewhere, about a city in a desert, California City, which hadn’t (yet) fulfilled its promise to become the third-largest city in California. Driven by curiosity to this unfinished place, we ended up there together and found ourselves going back regularly over four years, in search of what our film might become, in this place that was always coming into being. We met countless people stranded in California City. People who started over, seekers of gold and fortune,” say the co-directors.
