Stemple Pass

Directed by James Benning
United States, 2013
Avant-Garde

Synopsis

Four static shots, each from the same angle and each half an hour in length: spring, fall, winter and finally summer. A voice that periodically intrudes on these tranquil scenes, reading out passages from the writings of infamous anti-technology terrorist Ted Kaczynski, A.K.A. the “Unabomber”.

Critics reviews

Alternately brilliant, angry and confounding, these journal entries (and additionally a manifesto and article that find him more focused) are utterly compelling… One particularly memorable insight regards how life in the city numbs us to the physical and sensory context of our environment, forcing us to direct our attention inward, whereas living in nature does the opposite, focusing one’s attention outward, sharpening perception.
