James Turrell - Passageways
A Movie by Carine Asscher
Produced by C.A. Productions/Centre Pompidou, Paris 1995
English original version - version with French subtitles
A pilot for many years, James Turrell is today the greatest American Land Art artist, and considers the sky as his studio. Upon spectacular and historical aerial images of Arizona's canyons, Turrell recalls his formal research on natural light and his friendship with the Hopi Indians. The film gives Turrell the opportunity to present his master-piece, Roden Crater, a true celestial light "observatory".
