Two Years at Sea
First screened in February 2019
Director: Ben Rivers. Cast: Jake Williams. Screenplay: Ben Rivers.

Twitter Capsule: Imagine Brakhage and Reichardt remaking Turin Horse. Repetitive, taciturn images yield surprising reverberations.

VOR:   It's important for cinema to have artists like Rivers working at its edges (which are some people's centers!). Stylistically and generically autonomous.
