White Sands National Park, NM imagery featured in Lady Gaga short film

A scene from Lady Gaga’s recent video for ‘911.”

Lady Gaga found New Mexico enchanting enough for her latest short film for the song, “911.”

The superstar released the project on Friday.

In an Instagram post, Lady Gaga said “this short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us.”

Lady Gaga filmed her latest video at White Sands.

The film begins with Lady Gaga waking up in White Sands, then cuts to a church.

During one scene, a man on horseback is carrying the New Mexico flag.

Towards the end of the film, a movie poster is seen that reads, “New Mexico White Sands National Park.”

According to the New Mexico Film Office, there was no video project registered with the office. Productions only register with the office to get the tax incentive and there were no new productions since pandemic.

Lady Gaga thanked her crew for making the short film safely during the pandemic without anyone getting sick.

“It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity to make together what we did with ‘911,’ ” Lady Gaga posted.

As of Friday afternoon, her post had 1.3 million views and nearly 20,000 comments.
