A radical examination of Monument Valley’s representation in cinema and advertising since John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939), The Taking scrutinizes how a site located on sovereign Navajo land came to embody the fantasy of the “Old West,” replete with self-perpetuating falsehoods, and why it continues to hold mythic significance in the global psyche.
The Taking is a documentary about John Ford, Monument Valley, and the myth of the West. It’s an exploration of the way the Monuments have been filmed over the years, especially in John Ford’s movies, but also beyond to try and understand the relationship between iconography and myth.” - Scream
