The Sky Trembles and The Earth Is Afraid...

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

'The Sky Trembles and the Earth is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers' [the complete title of this piece] is partially inspired by Paul Bowles’ story 'A Distant Episode', and charts a mysterious transformation from observational making-of to inventive adaptation, shot against a staggering Moroccan landscape.
"Ben Rivers explores the illusion of filmmaking in Morocco... The Moroccan Sahara is littered with the legacy of films shot in its dramatic vistas: abandoned sets that reveal the artifice of filmmaking and trigger our recollection of the half-imagined spaces of familiar films from decades past." (Artangel)
Locarno Film Festival 2015 - World premiere
