Directors: Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Véréna Paravel
2012, 87', DCP, color
English with Turkish subtitles 

Filmed with a dozen small body-mounted cameras, the documentary epic Leviathan plunges the viewer into the obscure waters surrounding Bedford, Massachusetts, once the world’s whaling capital, from where Herman Melville’s Pequod set sail in Moby Dick (1851). At the heaving waterline, fish and fishermen punctuate the darkness as the engines grind on through the night. What began as an investigation into the fishing industry becomes a study in the even greater struggle between humans, machines and nature.
