This is the Place

by Nix, Lena



Lena Nix’s This Is The Place, is an exploration through interview of the beliefs and history of a small Mormon town, originally founded as a utopian commune in the 19th century, in Utah, America. The film expertly dissects and records both the ideological and physical landscape of this latter-day frontier community, by simply allowing each participant the space to voice their hopes, aspirations and foundational myths and by a cinematographic style that lightly parodies the consumer holiday programme genre.
