The Yeagers’ 1970 14 foot trailer in which they lived for 4 years. For 4 years, they filmed and lived in ghost towns, Indian ruins, and BLM land. Two Guns, Arizona. The Yeagers wrote, produced, directed, acted and composed the film’s soundtrack, completing Jesus of Malibu all by themselves with no money or even a one person film crew. Death Valley, California. They also used objects they found alongside the road, in abandoned sites and buildings and in ghost towns to make many of the film props and film sets. Billy and Anais Yeager in New Mexico.
