Special Preview (with Director’s Introduction and Q&A):
Ben Rivers, The Sky Trembles and the Earth is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers
An enigmatic young director abandons his film set and descends into a hallucinatory, perilous adventure of cruelty, madness and malevolence. A multi-layered excavation into the illusion of cinema itself, Ben Rivers’ (Two Years at Sea, A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness) latest feature is a visually unsettling film that moves between documentary, fiction and fable taking us through the staggering beauty of the Moroccan landscape, from the rugged terrain of the Atlas Mountains to the stark and surreal emptiness of the Sahara.
The film will be introduced by Ben Rivers and will be followed by a discussion between Rivers and Benjamin Cook, Director of LUX.
