The United States of America
(Bette Gordon, James Benning, 1975, 27 min)
A true masterpiece of 70’s cinema, more remarkable today than ever before. A conceptual bicentennial film dealing with spatial and temporal relationships between two travelers, their car, and the geographic, political, and social changes from New York to Los Angeles. The space within each frame is at the same time continuous and elliptical. -Andrew Lampert
