Lone Star Film Festival - Leviathan
November 11, 2012
220 East Third Street , Fort Worth, TX
Off the New Bedford coast, bobbing on the ink-black Atlantic, a roaring vessel harvests nets full of fish from the great deep. On deck scrambles an exhausted crew of colourful slicker-wearing fisherman, some of the last physical laborers in a post-industrial society. Alongside the boat, seagulls fly, diving into the water for chum. These are the basic elements of Leviathan, the newest collaborative work from anthropologists, artists and filmmakers Lucien Castaing-Taylor (Sweetgrass) and Véréna Paravel (Foreign Parts). But this "collaborative work" also includes the participation of the sailors, the fish and the birds, who all appear alongside one another. Hailing from the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University, the filmmakers have created a completely immersive documentary. In this stunning and unparalleled masterpiece, using small digital cameras, they have discovered new forms of cinema. There has not yet been a film quite like Leviathan.
