Film: Where is Rocky II?

Arthur Bell Auditorium


At the end of the 1970s, artist Ed Ruscha left an artwork – a fake rock – somewhere in the vast Mojave desert. French artist Pierre Bismuth has spent a decade trying to find it – with the help of a private detective and a film crew...

It is believed that an internationally acclaimed American artist Ed Ruscha produced a witty and mysterious object in 1979 that absolutely no one seems to be aware of, a fake rock hidden amongst real ones in the vast Californian desert. Now almost 40 years later, Academy-Award® Winner, artist and filmmaker Pierre Bismuth has set out to find this mysterious hidden piece, with the help of a private detective and two talented Hollywood screenwriters.
