James Benning James Benning



Unjustly ignored in cinema histories, James Benning started to make films in the late 1960s, combining formal concerns and figurative narration. Working on his own, armed only with his Nagra and 16 mm camera, he filmed natural and urban landscapes throughout America. In 2007, he decided to switch to digital filmmaking – one more reason, if needed, to revisit his forty-year-long career.
