"Co-created with writer Rudy Wurlitzer, "Candy Mountain" was Frank's most widely distributed and expensive productions, and the cast includes several renowned musicians. The tale follows Julius Book, a would-be musician who embarks on a journey from New York to Nova Scotia in search of the musician's Holy Grail: the elusive guitar maker, Elmore Silk. Along the way, Book learns hard life lessons as he faces optimism and hope, as well as failure and disillusionment". Cited from Robert Frank Film Retrospective program, SFMoMa 2009.
