Leviathan

Großbritannien, USA, 2012
Avantgarde, Dokumentarfilm

Darum geht's

In the waters where Melville’s Pequod gave chase to Moby Dick, Leviathan captures the collaborative clash of man, nature, and machine. Shot on a dozen small cameras — tossed and tethered, passed from fisherman to filmmaker — it is a cosmic portrait of mankind’s place at the edge of wilderness.

If any of the SEL films creates a “post-humanist” vision, it is this one. Although this goal may seem at odds with a cinema that seeks grounding in the senses, Leviathan simply extrapolates “sensory” from the human body to the body of the world itself—to the bodies of matter, nature, economic exploitation, etc.

If Leviathan is suspect ethnography, it’s staggering cinema – proof that there are more things in heaven and below the sea that you can imagine, that there are new images waiting to be discovered.

There is so much in this film to ponder with regard to how it was made and what it’s saying. In showing the realities of deep sea fishing and allowing viewers a so-close-you-can-touch/taste/hear/smell-it vision of life on a commercial schooner, the film fills a kind of tacit educational remit.
