UMFA film makes a strong ?point?

By Evan Frank

On Saturday, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts will hold a free public screening of filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni’s “Zabriskie Point.”

The film focuses on America’s counterculture movement of the late 1960s. Released in 1970, “Zabriskie Point” follows a young couple who meet under the landscape of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley, Calif. Mark, a young radical, meets Daria, an innocent person searching for a lover. The film focuses on their love for each other and the different situations they get themselves into amid the desert backdrop of eastern California.

Along with an impressive soundtrack with the likes of Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead and The Youngbloods, the film is also a stark visual feast.

“Zabriskie Point” is part of this fall’s Desert Secret Film Series inspired by the Desert Secrets: Photography from the Permanent Collection, which examines the terrain of Southwestern landscapes through contemporary photographs. The film begins at 2 p.m. and is rated R.
