Amargosa

Synopsis

In the early 1960s, dancer-choreographer Marta Becket fled the maddening crowd of New York to start the Amargosa Opera House in the middle of death valley. This documentary, directed by [[Performer~P203032~Todd Robinson~toddrobinson]], charts how her early career in New York progressed, her complicated relationship with her loving though dependant mother, and her ultimate artistic liberation in Death Valley. This film was a finalist for a 1999 Academy Award Nomination. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
