Details

Produced at the junction of two millennia, the California Trilogy is James Benning's three-part topographical study of America's Golden State. Looking to the past while investigating the present, the mathematician-turned-filmmaker condenses three distinct Californian landscapes into a total of 105 shots, each exactly 2 minutes long. Formal restraint and compositional precision combine with ambient sound and an unheard social commentary to create a hypnotic journey across the 31st US State; from the Great Central Valley (El Valley Centro) through greater Los Angeles (Los) to the Californian wilderness (Sogobi). This 2-disc set presents the complete California Trilogy for the first time ever on DVD.

This double DVD contains:

  • El Valley Centro, 1999, 87 min
  • Los, 2000, 87 min
  • Sogobi, 2001, 87 min
