The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series will present “Three Landscapes” (2013) with filmmaker Peter Hutton, on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ. The event includes the screening of the film as well as a discussion with the filmmaker. It is free and open to the public.
Peter Hutton has been described as one of America’s greatest landscape and cityscape artists. Hutton believes filmmaking should offer viewers a reprieve from the distractions of contemporary day-to-day life and a chance to look carefully, deeply, at both the familiar and the exotic. In “Three Landscapes,” he explores Detroit, the Hudson Valley and the Afar Depression in Ethiopia. All of Hutton’s films are silent.
