Hot Afternoons Have Been In Montana
Based on the esteemed 1925 Nation prize-winning poem by Eli Siegel, this dramatic and colorful montage, combining still photography, live-action and special effects, shows how a hot afternoon in Montana is related to the whole world—people, places, things, eventspast and present. It so deeply honors the earth—its land, history and people.
“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
