Film index A to Z

Leviathan

Filmed on an industrial fishing boat, Leviathan is a documentary of incredible formal innovation and a harrowing plunge into the ship’s labyrinthine bowels. Almost entirely without dialogue, the film – the signature work of the Sensory Ethnography Lab – exposes the brutality of the human-nature-machine encounter. Between anthropological observation and abstract cinematic experience, Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel have created a monstrous and sublime audio-visual opus.

Presented in collaboration with Canal D and the Cinéma sous les étoiles de Funambules Médias
