Conceived in part as a fictional documentary about a group of people recounting their experiences visiting a Native American reservation in southeastern Arizona, The Desert People is the first work that Lamelas produced in Los Angeles. Described by the artist as “a study on American film production,” the film shifts between genres to point to the deficiencies of narrative in documentary- style filmmaking, purposefully calling attention to the highly subjective nature of meaning and truth.
