For many cinema buffs, the western is the absolute pinnacle of genre cinema - with many early examples of the form still praised on best ever lists.

On February 17th, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be hosting a screening of a film that really brings a unique twist to the western.

It was made by Walter De Maria - a pioneering conceptual artist who is perhaps best known for his highly acclaimed installations.

His film Hard Core was shot in the Black Rock Desert of Nebraska, which captured the power of the desert in a 360-degree panning shot.

Two music pieces that were recorded by De Maria accompany the film - Cricket Music and Ocean Music.

Visitors to the city of angels who are hoping to catch the film may wish to book rooms at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles.

This is a mere 20-minute drive from the venue.
