(James Benning, USA, 2008, 16mm, 111 min)

In 1895, the first film audience ever reportedly ran screaming from the theater during the Lumiere brothers The Arrival of a Train. The audience thought that an actual oncoming train was hurtling towards them, unfamiliar as they were with the screen and projector that produced the moving image. Although todays moviegoers may be more comfortable with train footage, James Bennings RR promises a unique kind of cinematic experience for audiences. Structured around the deceptively simple visual motif of a train crossing a series of static shots, it presents a visually stunning portrait of the role of railroads in American history and culture.

Northwest Film Forum members, join us for a free discussion with program director Adam Sekuler after the screening!

Benning has an incredible formal eye, able to place his 16mm camera in the absolute perfect spot and capture the landscape. Daily Plastic
