First premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015 and now set to make its theatrical debut on May 13, Rodrigo García's critically acclaimed film Last Days in the Desert was filmed at Fonts Point and shows many reconizable scenes from Anza Borrego.

Actor Ewan McGregor portrays both Jesus and Lucifer in the 98-minute picture in "an imagined chapter from Jesus' forty days of fasting and praying in the desert," On His way out of the open and unforgiving wilderness, Jesus struggles with the devil over the fate of a family in crisis prior to the beginning of His ministry.

The film was written and directed by García, and also stars Tye Sheridan, Ciarán Hinds, Ayelet Zurer, and Susan Gray.
