Movie Info

Filmmaker James Benning offers an unusual perspective on one of the world's most common vices in this experimental documentary. In Twenty Cigarettes, Benning casts a static eye on twenty different people from all walks of life -- men and women, celebrated and obscure, wealthy and working-class -- as they each stand before the camera and smoke a cigarette. The film features no interviews and little conversation from Benning's subjects; we simply watch as they light up and puff away, thinking their thoughts as tobacco turns to ash. Each smoker is filmed in a single, uninterrupted shot, with the natural sounds of their environment the only accompaniment, the story being communicated by the faces of twenty people spending a few minutes with a smoke. Twenty Cigarettes was an official selection at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
