Ben Rivers: 

The Sky Trembles

and the Earth Is Afraid

and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

“One of the most constantly evolving, mysterious, elemental, and resonant bodies of work by any active filmmaker.” – Cinemascope

Critics and juries worldwide praise London-based Ben Rivers as one of the most compelling independent filmmakers of this generation. In a program of new works, his gritty, in-depth films portray convey subjects with an evocative vividness that distinguishes them from all familiar genres. Often following and filming people who have separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides a starting point for oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds. Rivers is the recipient of the FIPRESCI International Critics Prize, 68th Venice Film Festival; the Artangel Open 2013; the inaugural Robert Gardner Film Award; the Baloise Art Prize, Art Basel; Artangel Open 2013; and two Tiger Awards from International Film Festival Rotterdam.
