Digital transcription of a super-8mm color film made by Miloš Šejn. The reflections of sun rays penetrating through the rocks on the water’s surface in a narrow gap in Plakánek valley of a side stream of Klenice Creek in Bohemian Paradise.

— Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art. James Crump, 2015, USA, 68 min
The film casts these artists in a heroic light, which is exactly how they saw themselves. Iconoclasts who changed the landscape of art forever, these revolutionary, antagonistic creatives risked their careers on radical artistic change and experimentation, and took on the establishment to produce art on their own terms. The film includes rare footage and interviews which unveil the enigmatic lives and careers of storied artists Robert Smithson (Spiral Jetty), Walter De Maria (The Lightning Field) and Michael Heizer (Double Negative); a headstrong troika that established the genre.
