Our Experimental Film Club event will be a screening of James Benning’s RR (2007) and Geoffrey Jones’ 1967 short Snow on January 19th at 18.50. The relationship between the train and cinema is a rich and varied one – the train gave the cinema its ‘primal myth’ with the first Lumiere screening of one arriving at a station. The train was a reflexive tool for the cinema, providing a means by which it could marvel at the spectacle its own processes, and for this event Daniel Fitzpatrick will examine the rich relationship between trains and movies through these two films.
