F.I.L.M. Series Presents James Benning


The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) spring 2015 series concludes on May 3, at 2 p.m., when filmmaker James Benning presents his performance piece “Two Cabins.” The event takes place in Bradford Auditorium in the Kirner-Johnson Building, and is free and open to the public.

James Benning has many fascinations: the American landscape, “outsider painting,” mathematics, Henry David Thoreau and Ted Kaczynski (“the Unibomber”). In fact, on a plot of land he owns in the Sierra Nevada Mountains north of Los Angeles, he has built facsimiles of Thoreau’s and Kaczynski’s cabins.

His many films are among the most remarkable cinematic representations of American landscape: challenging, thoughtful and beautiful; and as a result, he has been a guest of the F.I.L.M. series several times.

This time, he will present his performance piece, “Two Cabins,” a trip through personal and national history and geography—a great way to get to know this remarkable film artist and his fascinations.
