Ben Russell introduces
Let Each One Go Where He May

"A personal film, a documentary, an ethnography, and a piece of international art cinema.… [Ben Russell] has done something nearly maddening: he's made a masterpiece that refuses to be just one."—Cinema Scope

Ben Russell returns to the Wexner Center to present his first feature, Let Each One Go Where He May, an epic achievement that won the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) Award for Best Film at the 2010 International Film Festival Rotterdam. Consisting of 13 entrancing shots lasting about ten minutes each (mostly shot on Steadicam with the Wexner Center's 16mm camera), the film follows two brothers on an almost mythic journey across Suriname, traveling a trail blazed by their ancestors, slaves escaping from their Dutch masters. The brothers encounter diverse landscapes and environments from the outskirts of Suriname's capital, Paramaribo, to inland jungles. The Baltimore City Paper aptly described Russell's film as "an oddly hypnotic movie riddled with disarming beauty, some sequences remind you that…cinema can be an essential tool that explores ideas that traditional ethnography cannot." (135 mins., 16mm)
