Storyline

In January 1931, Everett Ruess, a young Los Angeles artist, left his comfortable home, hitchhiked to Arizona and walked into the wild desert canyons alone. Ruess planned to paint a collection of pictures for exhibition. Three years later, he no longer cared about fame. In a final letter home Ruess wrote: "As to when I will revisit civilization, it will not be soon, I think...I prefer the deep peace of the wilderness to the discontent bred by cities." Ruess scratched the name "NEMO" (no one) on a high cliff, led his burros into a deep crack in the earth called Davis Gulch and vanished. Written by Anonymous

I saw it. I loved it. I made it.

We took 15 years from optioning the rights to complete the film, so obviously we thought the story of this literate, young, vanished writer and poet was worth telling. The fact the film was a commercial failure in no way detracts from Ruess' story. You can read more about him in Into The Wild, by Jon Krakauer. Director Diane Orr, a native of Utah and longtime visitor to the desert in and around Capital Reef National Park, spent time in the small town of Escalante, UT., interviewing anyone she could find who was alive in 1934, to discover Ruess' fate. What she found has caused a major revision in the theories "Ruess buffs" propose as to what happened to him after he made his last camp.
