SALVATION MOUNTAIN ON FILM / CALIFORNIA
Deep in the California desert, near Niland, where everything is just sand and dirt, there is a small hill - bright and colorful, covered with birds, flowers, Christian sayings and Bible verses and a white cross on the top.
it is a creation like no one in the world, built by the hands of just one man - Leonard Knight, who believed that he has to spread an important religious message to the world.
Leonard Knight dedicated 28 years of his life to built salvation mountain. i’m pretty sure that most of us will wonder how is it possible to throw away our comfortable and well settled life and to relocate to this wilderness with the belief that you just have to do it.
I don’t know the answers of that, but the dedication of Leonard Knight and his hard work deserved admiration and respect.
Can you dedicate 28 years of your life on a certain cause, even when the whole world is against you?
