How much can you see of a movie you can't see? A speculative video essay on the film READERS by James Benning. By Chloé Galibert-Laîné and Kevin B. Lee. Commissioned by the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is likely that a number of the Benning films found on YouTube are copied from officially distributed sources. For example, 13 Benning films are distributed on DVD through the Austrian Film Museum: filmmuseum.at/jart/prj3/filmmuseum/main.jart?rel=en&reserve-mode=active&content-id=1219068743813&start=0&search=James%20Benning&block-size=500&s-mode=shop
Irrespective of deliberating the virtues or violations in the accessibility of these films on YouTube, the labor and efforts of those who first made these works available in a digital format deserve acknowledgement and support.
