Easy Rider
dir. James Benning / USA 2012 / 95’

Film description

In this structuralist road film in search of modern counterculture, Benning takes audiences on a road trip through poor provincial America down the path once travelled in the eponymous classic hippie movie. The director substitutes original Easy Rider scenes with single takes shot in the same location (though he admits to cheating a bit sometimes, much like Dennis Hopper). The natural background noise crackles with fragments of the original’s soundtrack and Benning’s replica is filled with references characteristic of his work: political revolution, working class experiences, finding your place and autonomy, as well as to his prior films such as11 x 14, RR, One Way Boogie Woogie.
