James Benning: Deseret (February 11, 1998)01:46:04

Ed Dimendberg introduces filmmaker James Benning. Before screening his 1995 movie “Deseret,” Benning briefly discusses how he compiled 93 sentences from the New York Times about the Mormon Church in Utah, from 1851 to the present. Presented in chronological order, they provide the narration for Benning’s scenes of Utah, which are not necessarily illustrations. “Deseret” is screened. Afterwards, Benning responds to questions.
