Trailer for the documentary The Ghost Mountain Experiment.

Rugged idealist Marshal South and his family fled the city hoping to live off the land in the California desert in the 1930s but found that the vision of the simple life was not so easily attainable. In this fascinating documentary, filmmaker John McDonald uses interviews with two of the three South children to show how their father's audacious experiment in self-sufficiency went awry as the difficult desert life sparked conflict in their home.
