F.I.L.M. Series Presents “Leviathan”

Discussion with Director to Follow

The Hamilton College F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series will screen “Leviathan” (2012) with director Lucien Castaing-Taylor, on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 2 p.m., in the Bradford Auditorium, Kirner-Johnson Building. The event includes the screening of the film as well as a discussion with the director. It is free and open to the public.

“Leviathan” is a category-confounding feature – an “avant-doc” – that is, on one hand, a riveting documentary about the sensory world of commercial fishing out of New Bedford, Mass., and at the same time, a virtually hallucinatory experiment. Co-produced and shot by Castaing-Taylor (Sweetgrass) and Véréna Paravel (Foreign Parts), “Leviathan” immerses the viewer in the harsh realities of life on a ground fish trawler.  Since its release in 2012, the film has met much critical acclaim.  Castaing-Taylor is the director of Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab.
