The oeuvres of experimental filmmaker James Benning and indie mainstay Richard Linklater might not appear to have much in common, but they share a decades-old friendship that began when Linklater asked Benning to show his films at the Austin Film Society.

Gabe Klinger's documentary charts their bond and bodies of work during a visit Benning paid Linklater in Texas. Required viewing for film lovers!

"At a certain point in DOUBLE PLAY, Benning suggests that duration in cinema reveals meaning. This is apparent, though manifested differently, in both Benning and Linklater's films. In Benning, there's on-screen duration: shots that can last anywhere from seconds to hours. In Linklater, duration occurs most interestingly between films (e.g. the BEFORE trilogy). DOUBLE PLAY explores the marks of time, of duration, not only in Benning and Linklater's respective filmic bodies, but also in their friendship and lives." Gabe Klinger
