HOT AFTERNOONS HAVE BEEN IN MONTANA [DVD]
by Ken Kimmelman
The film is based on the esteemed 1925 Nation Magazine prize poem, read by its author, Eli Siegel, founder of Aesthetic Realism.
“Ken Kimmelman’s reproduction, on film, of Eli Siegel’s magisterial poem, is an extraordinary achievement. It matches, in its visual beauty, the elegance of Siegel’s words, and adds the dimension of stunning imagery to an already profound work of art.” —Howard Zinn, historian
