    While on an excursion in New Guinea to procure rare feathers, Vivian (Bulle Ogier), a French diplomat’s wife, joins a band of vagabond hippies on a quest to discover an uncharted, utopian valley. The Valley is a hallucinatory parable of post-sixties idealism hurtling into oblivion with a trancey Pink Floyd score and stunning cinematography by Néstor Almendros, who captures the island’s lush, awe-inspiring beauty.
