CANYONLANDS is a 52 minute documentary and interactive documentary about the desert southwest as encountered through the words and ideas of the renegade author, Edward Abbey. In works such as Desert Solitaire and The Monkey Wrench Gang, Edward Abbey provoked new ways of thinking about nature and inspired the formation of environmental groups such as EarthFirst! CANYONLANDS was shot in the contemporary deserts of Utah and Arizona that Abbey describes so evocatively in his books. The film sets his visionary texts and new interviews against evocative recordings of a world under transformation -- a landscape shaped equally by the forces of nature and of human intervention.
