Off the New Bedford coast, bobbing on the ink-black Atlantic, a roaring vessel harvests nets full of fish from the great deep. Having pushed the boundaries of the documentary form with Sweetgrass (VIFF 09) and Foreign Parts (VIFF 10), Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel now collaborate on a "gorgeous-looking paean to the world of fishing… a breathtakingly lyrical take on the ritualistic hunting process at its center."—Indiewire. But beware! Leviathan is also a monster, an abstract, anarchic horror film. Winner, FIPRESCI prize, Locarno 2012.
