In 2005 Ken Kimmelman released a film he's hoped to make for many years, Hot Afternoons Have Been in Montana, a visualization of the 1925 Nation prize poem by Eli Siegel. Historian Howard Zinn said of it:
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.
