The American film maker James Benning has been one of the outstanding exponents of the structural film since the mid-1970s. Bennings artistic position has been strongly influenced by mathematics and by the creativity of mathematical thinking. With his new project 13 Lakes, James Benning goes one step further towards reducing things to a minimum. The film focuses on thirteen large American lakes along with their geographical and historical relationship to the landscape: Lake Michigan (Michigan), Great Salt Lake (Utah), Hiamna Lake (Alaska), Lake Okeechobee (Florida), Lake Pontchartrain (Louisiana), Red Lake (Minnesota), Lake Champlain (New York), Salton Sea (California), Lake Powell (Arizona), Lake Winnebego (Wisconsin), Flathead Lake (Montana), Goose Lake (Oregon), and Moosehead Lake (Maine).
