On Paradise Road

James BENNING
USA 2020 75min DCP color Documentary G Asian Premiere
Overview

Filmed in Benning´s home in Val Verde during the first month of the pandemic, On Paradise Road is a portrait of that time.

Review

COVID-19 allowed us to peer through James Benning’s home in Val Verde in Los Angeles County, California. Movie theaters are shut down because of the pandemic. It allowed Benning to spend more time alone at home, feeling satisfied and wholeheartedly peaceful, and to be more productive in filmmaking. His filmmaking style of carefully observing various aspects of life and gazing at the time remains unchanged despite the changes in the outside world. On Paradise Road is the second film Benning made during the pandemic. In this film, he shows how tiny little things surrounding our daily life render our happiness. This film delivers a clear message that happy little moments are more than sufficient to bring satisfaction to life. (Sung MOON)
