3,000 MILES | 110 YEARS | 3 GENERATIONS | 1 EPIC ADVENTURE

FOLLOWING THE LANDMARK ROUTE TAKEN BY TWO RENOWNED NATURALISTS OVER A HUNDRED YEARS PRIOR, A GROUP OF PRESENT-DAY ADVENTURERS EMBARK ON AN EXPEDITION TO DOCUMENT THE BEAUTIFUL AND UNFORGIVING LANDSCAPE OF TODAY’S BAJA CALIFORNIA.

In 1905, two American naturalists set out on horseback across the remote deserts of Baja California, Mexico. Their 2,000-mile expedition was the first of its kind to span the entire peninsula and complete a comprehensive survey of Baja’s flora and fauna. Zig-zagging from coast to coast across the desolate interior, Edward William Nelson and Edward Alphonso Goldman described plants and animals unknown to science.

One hundred years later, Goldman’s descendants return to Baja to retrace the steps of this landmark expedition on motorcycles, and document the changing nature of this strange and beautiful landscape.


The Devil’s Road
is very multifaceted. It is part historical documentary, a re-telling of Baja’s natural history, highlighting the significant work both Nelson and Goldman did in this region, in a time when very little was known about Baja. We will be documenting 110-plus years of change on the peninsula, looking at its environmental, economic, and cultural implications. The film is also part journey through several crew members’ family history, as three of the frontrunners of the film are directly related to Edward A. Goldman.

At its core, The Devil’s Road is an adventure film and travel narrative that aims to entertain viewers, while also being educational, raising awareness about, and paying homage to a uniquely beautiful and inspiring place that is quickly becoming tarnished by the human footprint.

It is our goal to incite the crew’s passion about Baja in viewers, create excitement about the film’s message and its content, and produce a visually stunning film. We hope the film will resonate within viewers, and spark a desire to preserve Baja for future generations.

We can’t make the film without the help of contributors, sponsors, and supporters. Contributors will play a key role in sharing the film’s message and joining the conversation our film establishes. We want nothing more than to stir in viewers the crew’s same passion and regard for Baja and to make a difference in its future.

Help us meet our goal and contribute, follow, “like,”
