Trailer for Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor's "Leviathan"

The new documentary from the filmmakers of Sweetgrass and Foreign Parts looks absolutely stunning.

Suffice to say we are very excited about Leviathan. The documentary is Castaing-Taylor's followup to Sweetgrass (2009) and Paravel's followup to Foreign Parts (2010):

in the very waters where melville’s pequod gave chase to moby dick, leviathan captures the collaborative clash of man, nature, and machine. shot on a dozen cameras — tossed and tethered, passed from fisherman to filmmaker — it is a cosmic portrait of one of mankind’s oldest endeavors.

The film looks to premiere at this year's Locarno Film Festival. More information can be found on the film's official site.  Thanks to David Phelps for the tip.

This is quite something!
If this trailer was a short film, it’d be on my films of the year list, so, um, highly anticipating the feature.
