The Next Best Place: 4 Short Landscape Films (Digital)
Dir. Bill Brown (1994, 1999, 2001, 2003); USA, 92m
Programmed by: Sam Schrader

In these four short film essays, Bill Brown considers the North American landscape as a text to be deciphered and the road trip as an extension of the act of filmmaking — or is it the other way around? These dispatches from the 1990’s were transmitted from a secret island that emerged briefly at the end of the Cold War before sinking beneath rising oceans and hyper-anxiety. Roswell (1994), Confederation Park (1999), Buffalo Common (2001), and Mountain State (2003).
