Dreams of The Vanishing West

Images from Melody Kahtava of buildings and the landscape of the lost west – reminiscent of the landscape, buildings and towns in Vanishing Point


A young jailbird manages to escape from prison but struggles to hold down a job in this dialogue-free experimental short by John Pearse, co-owner of 60s fashion emporium Granny Takes a Trip. Pearse turned to film in the early 70s and shot this film, which stars his wife Florence Nicaise, in Westbourne Grove and Lots Road in London. It remained unseen until 1979, when it was shown with the feature Caligula.

Dreams of The Vanishing West

Melody and Bryan Kahtava scour the mines and forgotten buildings of the Mid-West of America – looking like the towns that Kowalski speeds through and past in Vanishing Point – “Some are funny. Some are touching. Some are creepy. Some are boring…”

Melody’s photographs capture a forgotten and often now destroyed world, they are both driven forward by preservation of history, both through photos and arterfacts, preserving something that otherwise would never have been seen again

Vanishing Point is now on my list. Perhaps the rain out at Castle Rock is a good excuse. This event sounds fantastic. Dig.

Hell yeah.... I somehow managed to watch a late-night screening of VP aged 9 or 10, it had a lasting impression on me. It was a thrill to be up late watching an edgy adult road movie, enter the curiously named Gilda Texter? or 'nude rider' she was the first 3D nude person I'd seen and I was very interested! As Texter rode across our 14" colour PYE on her (from Memory) Honda CL 350, I asked my mother why she had no clothes on? My mother replied "some people are just like that" and I thought to myself, I'm one of those people.

Have a great night watching this seminal road movie, I'll be watching in solidarity of anyone…
