Last Stop Before Chocolate MountainSusanna della Sala
This visual gem takes you to Bombay Beach, an abandoned town situated at a toxic lake in the middle of the California desert, which is given an unexpected second life. While the desolate landscape symbolizes neglect and decay, a secret art project emerges. For the small community that lives there, art offers an unexpected, new way out. A British matriarch, a retired bank robber, an artist on the run and an Italian prince open the doors to a special place where quirky people are still allowed and able to dream.
