Marfa Mystery LightsA Concert for the UFO's – featuring The Secret Machines (DVD)

Charles de Meaux - Marfa Mystery Lights
A performance of The Secret Machines conceived and filmed by Charles de Meaux.

In February 2006, Charles de Meaux met up with the Texan psychedelic rock band The Secret Machines for a performance in Marfa, the city of Donald Judd and of Mystery Lights. This film is the private notebook taken from this experience lived in the shadow of some "Giants" of the American culture. A close encounter of the third kind which tells a lot about the contradictions of our contemporary culture.
Co-founder of the production company Anna Sanders Films, Charles de Meaux (born 1967 in Istambul, lives and works in Paris) is an artist and a movie maker (Trailer part one, Le pont du trieur, with Philippe Parreno, Shimkent Hotel, Stretch...).
