Movie Info

An experimental, non-narrative film on the theme of Americana as it impacts commerce, transportation and the contemporary North American landscape, James Benning's feature-length RR consists of a series of 16mm shots of U.S. railroads. Each shot begins with an empty track - commencing a few seconds before a train enters - and wraps a few seconds after the train disappears from view. In lieu of relying exclusively on the direct sounds of his images to produce aural accompaniment, Benning overlays a combination of political sounds on the soundtrack including Dwight Eisenhower's seminal speech on the military industrial complex (with its extended quotes from the Revelation of St. John) and the sound of an unseen helicopter intended to directly evoke Vietnam.more
