Bars­tow, Cali­for­nia’ is the third film in the tri­lo­gy ‘The Ame­ri­can West’ (the other two films are: ‘Nome Road Sys­tem’ and ‘Mill­town, Mon­ta­na’) about pla­ces in the rela­tively spar­se­ly popu­la­ted are­as of the Ame­ri­can West. It is an artis­tic docu­men­ta­ry record­ing life & land­s­cape in the Cali­for­nia sou­thwes­tern desert. The trilogy’s style of ‘land­s­cape lis­tening’ (ambi­ent audio only) will be alte­red some­what with Bars­tow to add the voice of Stan­ley ‘Spoon’ Jack­son (an inter­na­tio­nal­ly-acc­lai­med, Bars­tow-born prisoner/poet) to the sound­track rea­ding pas­sa­ges from his auto­bio­gra­phy dealing with his youth & life in the area.
