Palm Springs, CA

The world premiere of a new documentary detailing Frank Sinatra’s connection to Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley at large will premiere tomorrow during the Modernism Week celebration held through Sunday.

“Sinatra in Palm Springs — The Place He Called Home,” explores the singer’s attachment to the Coachella Valley, which he called home for nearly half a century.

The 92-minute film, directed by Rancho Mirage resident Leo Zahn, spans Sinatra’s post-World War II life and his Palm Springs residency beginning in 1947. The film also follows his marriages to Ava Gardner and Barbara Sinatra, and his move to Rancho Mirage in 1954.
