Are You Doin’ Some Stuff, A Journey Into The Slow Movement Movement
(filmed and edited by Rodrigo Valenzuela, 10:23)
A Kind of Experiential Geography, The Long Walk, 2011

The Long Walk, 2010
(documentation shared by the Long Walkers 2010, edited by Britta Johnson, 4:44)
This trio of short films was shot as part of Robb’s The Long Walk commissioned by 4Culture and King County Parks. Both the walk and these works reflect a sense and appreciation for time and landscape.
A perfect companion, James Benning’s meditative take on Dennis Hopper’s counter-culture classic, Easy Rider will follow.
(James Benning, 2012, 95 min)
