Renowned artist and faculty member at the California Institute of the Arts, James Benning has been lauded as a structural filmmaker though his work is grounded in a variety of film practices. For more than four decades, he has influenced the international avant-garde. Known for composed long takes with an acute sensitivity to out-of-frame sound, Benning's films (and now high-definition recordings) are intense studies of places, travels, landscapes, and more recently, individuals. These three programs are presented in association with the photography exhibition The Serial Portrait: Photography and Identity in the Last One Hundred Years.
Event begins at 4:30PM
