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.

Our take

Launched at Locarno Film Festival in 2012, and quickly become one of the most talked about experimental films of the decade, the unclassifiable Leviathan is exactly the sort of film one can discover at such a fest: a visceral experience, a new way of seeing.
