"The connection between 'landscape' and 'cinema' seems obvious. One thinks of Westerns and the settlement of new territories, or possibly of the strips of land rushing past in road movies. Yet this interaction isn't only expressed in genre films, and it goes far beyond 'beautiful backdrops'. The film series Moving Landscapes, curated by Barbara Pichler and Andrea Pollach, concentrates on a much richer and modern idea of 'landscape in film'. It includes more than 60 works, linked through associations and well-defined contrasts – from the beginning of cinema to contemporary film and video production."
among this fine collection: "13 lakes" and drumroll the world premiere of "ten skies", both by james benning.
