James Benning, Ruhr

$8-9

Influential experimental filmmaker James Benning presents Ruhr, a two-hour film focusing on Germany’s industrial Ruhr Valley. The film is made up of long takes of repetitive situations: The final shot lasts a full 60 minutes, as the camera rests on an industrial tower, spewing water and steam. This is endurance filmmaking, probably not for the faint hearted. ALISON HALLETT
