LEVIATHAN (France/United Kingdom/USA, 2012, 87 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere Set inside one of the world’s most dangerous professions, the commercial fishing industry, this film takes to the high seas of the North Atlantic – Herman Melville territory – to capture this harsh, unforgiving world in all of its visceral, haunting, cosmic detail. Shot on a fishing boat 200 miles off the Massachusetts coast with waterproof digital cameras that were passed freely from film crew to ship crew, the result is a hallucinatory sensory experience quite unlike any other, as cameras swoop from below sea level to literal bird’s-eye views. To paraphrase Francis Ford Coppola describing his Apocalypse Now, Leviathan isn’t a movie about commercial fishing; it is commercial fishing. Put another way, the film doesn’t just explore the chasm between man and nature; it embodies it. (—New York Film Festival) Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel.
