The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
France, United Kingdom, United States | 2012 | Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Véréna Paravel
Life aboard a New England commercial fishing vessel on the roiling sea is vividly, indelibly captured in this engulfing new film from the makers of Sweetgrass. One of the most acclaimed and visceral films of the year, Leviathan deserves to be seen and experienced on the big screen, as it will be tonight at the Capitol Theatre. “Plunging viewers into the thick of chaos, Leviathan explodes the antiquated paradigm of the documentary or ethnographic film.” –The Village Voice. “Leviathan, a product of the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard, offers not information but immersion: 90 minutes of wind, water, grinding machinery and piscine agony.” –The New York Times. “Overpowering cinematic sensation.” –The A.V. Club.
