James Benning: casting a glance & RR

CHF 32.00 / EUR 29.00

In casting a glance one artist pays tribute to another as James Benning offers his filmic paean to Robert Smithson's legendary «earthwork» sculpture, the Spiral Jetty. With RR, his homage to the American railroad, the filmmaker brings an era to its close by going back to cinema's roots. Shot back-to-back over a period of two years, these works marked James Benning's farewell to analogue filmmaking and together constitute the profound "last words" on the film medium by one of its most singular innovators. This 2-disc set presents both films together with rare audio interviews in which Benning recounts the experience of making his «last» films and gives unique insight into his creative methods.
