Ben Rivers’ CINEMASCOPE TRILOGY
The cinema of Ben Rivers is one of the most bracing, refreshing new developments to occur in the experimental film world in recent years.
His films are from a different world, unfold at a unique pace, and partake in elements that resemble such genres as short-form documentary, ethnographic film, even the travelogue. But Rivers’ work constantly redefines itself. Like the subjects he prefers—people in the margins of the countryside, living in strange encampments and generating bizarre private utopias—Ben Rivers is an artist stationed between the zones of charted cultural space.
