Edgardo Luis Gonzalez
N/A
United States, 2021, 19 min.

In English with English subtitles.
Includes nudity and adult language.

While editing atomic footage for the Civil Defense, G-man Jakob Werner discovers a strange anomaly. Realizing his career- and potentially his sanity- is on the line, he heads back to the testing site. Once there, he makes a shocking discovery. Someone... or something... has been born in the mushroom cloud of atomic bombs.

Director's Statement

I was inspired by 1950s B-movies and atomic history of the Southwest to create From the Shadows of Desert Rocks. Jakob inadvertently finds himself embroiled in a search for answers to a question that is bigger than himself- the dawn of the atomic age; is it a time that should be embraced, feared, or something more? Rusted air bases, windswept highways, ruins of ancient civilizations - tread lightly in the shadows of desert rocks.
