Reviews
Starring Harry Dean Stanton, Nastassja Kinski, Dean Stockwell

Travis Henderson (Harry Dean Stanton) has been absent for four years before he wanders out of the West Texas desert, mute and amnesiac. Reunited with his family in L.A., Travis slowly regains his voice and memory, and realizes he must return to Texas and face the past he once fled. With a script by Pulitzer-winning playwright Sam Shepard and a haunting score by Ry Cooder, this Southwestern odyssey from cinema’s poet of the road, Wim Wenders, won the Palme d’Or at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.

Shown in conjunction with the film course American Journeys: Road Movies, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Amy Corbin, Ph.D.
