Wattis presents Another Time
A one-night-only screening of James Benning’s 2005 film One Way Boogie Woogie / 27 Years Later in Timken Lecture Hall. The film portrays an industrial, blue-collar town, in the filmmaker’s hometown of Milwaukee. The first 60 shots of the film–depicting factories, lonely railroad tracks, and desolate construction sites–were captured in 1977. Twenty-seven years later Benning returned to restage the film shot-by-shot, revealing the transformation of the landscape over time. One Way Boogie Woogie / 27 Years Later is exemplary of Benning’s distinctive cinematographic language, including extended shots that prolong anticipation.
