American Passages
Ruth Beckermann
2011 | 121 min | Colour | DCP

“Veteran Austrian documentary filmmaker Ruth Beckermann's American Passages is an impressive road-traveling collage of the U.S. at the advent of the Obama era. Although the film was ostensibly made to honor Robert Frank's famed 1958 photo essay, The Americans, no knowledge of that work is necessary to grasp Beckermann's aims: snapshot cinematic views of a massive country in a moment in time, spanning races, classes and geographies like a peripatetic anthropologist.” – Robert Koehler


Part of our season on Ruth Beckermann, curated and introduced by Colm McAuliffe.
