Film screening. Small Roads. 2011. USA. Directed by James Benning. 103 min.

Description

This is a landscape film where fifty American roads cross the country through space and time. At first sight there is no plot. The highways are scorched by the broiling sun; they are hidden in the fog or under fluffy snowflakes. A part of the neighbouring landscape is empty. Somewhere railways wind. The viewer is offered to invent a purpose and circumstances of the given route themselves in this meditative experience.

Screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2012.

The Russian Premier.

In the framework of the Deconstruction of Сinematic Realities Film Program.
