Watch: New England Fishing Doc 'Leviathan' Gets a Powerful Trailer
"Mind-blowing." Cinema Guild has released a trailer for what is being called one of the "most anticipated" documentaries this year, called Leviathan, directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor & Verena Paravel, of the docs Sweetgrass and Foreign Parts. It's set aboard a "hulking fishing vessel" hailing from New England, chronicling the commercial fishing world with some of the most raw visuals you'll see. THR's fest review describes it as "a wordless montage of footage filmed on small digital cameras from every dark corner of the boat." This is a fitting trailer for such an interesting and experimental doc, which may just be worth seeing.
Watch the official trailer for Lucien Castaing-Taylor & Verena Paravel's doc Leviathan, from Apple:
Leviathan is a thrilling, immersive documentary that takes viewers deep inside the dangerous world of commercial fishing. Set aboard a hulking fishing vessel as it navigates the treacherous waves off the New England coast—the very waters that once inspired Moby Dick—the film captures the harsh, unforgiving world of the fishermen in starkly haunting, yet beautiful detail. Employing an arsenal of cameras that pass freely from film crew to ship crew, and swoop from below sea level to astonishing bird's-eye views, Leviathan is unlike anything you have ever seen; a purely visceral, cinematic experience. Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor & Verena Paravel, of the docs Sweetgrass and Foreign Parts previously. After premiering at a number of film festivals worldwide in 2012, Cinema Guild will open Leviathan in theaters on March 1st.
