    • "HARDCORE, broadcast: 7/30/69 by Walter De Maria This durational work splices slow pans of a dry lake bed together to heighten landscape imagery, shifting light and the use of horizon . The sensual treatment is bracketed by a western motif that culminates in a six-gun shoot-out. Finally, a fixed shot of a young asian girl grounds the theme of the film, suggesting that the conquering of the West has been extended to other shores. Photographed by Blair Stapp. Music composed by De Maria. 27:56 Color 16mm""
