James Benning (Ruhr IFF10) has been at the forefront of American experimental cinema for the last 35 years. His static films have explored the American landscape like no other.

For his re-make of Dennis Hopper’s classic Easy Rider (1969), Benning has replaced each scene with one shot filmed at the original location and replaced the music with the music that he listens to today. By doing this he hopes to discover if a similar counter culture exists today as did in the ‘60s. The result is an important work from one of the leading voices of today’s avant garde cinema.
