Leviathan
  • Description

    A groundbreaking, immersive portrait of the contemporary commercial fishing industry.

    Filmed off the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts - at one time the whaling capital of the world as well as Melville's inspiration for 'Moby Dick';it is today the country's largest fishing port with over 500 ships sailing from its harbour every month. Leviathan follows one such vessel, a hulking ground fish trawler, into the surrounding murky black waters on a weeks-long fishing expedition. But instead of romanticizing the labour or partaking in the longstanding tradition of turning fisher folk into images, filmmakers Lucien Castiang-Taylor (Sweetgrass) and Verena Paravel (Foreign Parts) present a vivid, almost-kaleidoscopic representation of the work, the sea, the machinery and the players, both human and marine.

    Employing an arsenal of cameras that passed freely from film crew to ship crew; that swoop from below sea level to astonishing bird's-eye views, the film that emerges is unlike anything that has been seen before. Entirely dialogue-free, but mesmerizing and gripping throughout, it is a cosmic portrait of one of mankind's oldest endeavours.
