TWO YEARS AT SEA

DIRECTOR: Ben Rivers - GREAT BRITAIN

Two Years At Sea is a nearly wordless portrait of Jake, who lives a solitary existence in a Scottish forest in Aberdeenshire. Surviving frugally, he passes his time with strange projects and living the radical dream he had as a younger man, which he spent two years working at sea to realize. Rivers has made 20 shorts over the past decade, free of narrative, drama, and character development, inspired by literature and fine art, and exploring worlds at the far fringe of civilization—places of ragged, strange beauty where inventors, seers, and eccentric philosophers live in zealous communion with nature. “Too much exposition is the kind of thing that makes me bored with Hollywood movies,” Rivers says. “I like films that leave a lot to the audience.” (88 mins.)

First Feature.

Winner of the FIPRESCI Critics’ Prize at the Venice Film Festival.

Co-presented with Cinema Project.
