Recommend this film

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.

Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel, Leviathan is an impressionist study of a fishing trawler at work off the coast of Massachusetts, and was described by the jury – headed by Iranian director Samira Makhmalbaf – as "an original and imaginative documentary which observes the brutal routine of deep-sea fishing in a way which completely immerses the watcher in its story". The Guardian
