In September, the actor Julian Sands was in Utah to perform his one man show A Celebration of Harold Pinter. He asked us about Spiral Jetty, and if we might visit it with him. That's when we called Skylar Nielsen of Vita Brevis Films, and soon, we were on a helicopter heading out to Rozel Point. Jetty documents Sands' encounter with Robert Smithson's monumental work, his exploration of the space and his meditation on Smithson's own words.
