Film find: Leviathan

We are now into the thick of producing Moving Sushi into a documentary, and as a result our world has become immersed in sound bites,voice overs, colour, design and story telling. In this process we came across this documentary that is anything but traditional.

Receiving great reviews It's a near-wordless, almost abstract depiction of an 80-foot ground fishing boat heading out of New Bedford, Mass. A mesh of sounds, with no voice over direction- just images of a world on board and around a fishing boat out at sea. Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel, Taylor is director of Harvard University's Sensory Ethnography Lab, where they explore art through the sensory experience of being inside of a parti culture."We still wanted to create this multiplicity of perspectives that would relativize the human," he says. Perspectives that "would make the spectator rethink humanity's relationship to nature, in relationship to a plethora of other beings, of other animals, of other kind of inanimate objects — the elements, the earth, the sky, the sea, the boat, mechanisation, fish, crustaceans, starfish — everything that is involved in the ecology of what's going on in industrial fishing today."

Just the trailer alone is an overwhelming sensory experience, take a look for yourself.

Synopsis. One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, from the directors of Sweetgrass and Foreign Parts, LEVIATHAN is a thrilling, immersive documentary that takes you deep inside the dangerous world of commercial fishing. Set aboard a hulking fishing vessel as it navigates the treacherous waves off the New England coast—the very waters that once inspired Moby Dick—the film captures the harsh, unforgiving world of the fishermen in starkly haunting, yet beautiful detail. Employing an arsenal of cameras that pass freely from film crew to ship crew, and swoop from below sea level to astonishing bird's-eye views, LEVIATHAN is unlike anything you have ever seen; a purely visceral, cinematic experience.
