DIRECTOR: Wim Wenders STARS: Harry Dean Stanton, Nastassja Kinski SOURCE TEXT: Sam Shephard’s Motel Chronicles SCREENWRITER: L.M. Kit Carson, Sam Shephard

One of the most memorable films of the eighties with an electrifying score by Ry Cooder. A man wanders through searing desert heat in suit, tie and red baseball cap. Not Trump, but rather Travis (Harry Dean Stanton), he stumbles into a bar and collapses. Now four lost years in the wilderness begin to transform into a journey of healing and reconciliation. His seven year old son barely remembers him, but readily joins in a quest to find his wife (Nastassia Kinski), the boy’s mother. Will she embrace or reject their return?
