Director Ben Rivers joins us for an exclusive Q&A screening of his new film...
TWO YEARS AT SEA (U)
Monday 30 July, 6.15
A man called Jake lives alone in a ramshackle house in the middle of the forest. He goes for walks whatever the weather and takes naps in the misty fields and woods. He builds a raft to spend time fishing in a loch and drives a beat-up old jeep to pick up supplies of wood. Seen across the seasons surviving frugally and passing the time with strange projects, he is living the radical dream he had as a younger man, a dream he spent two years working at sea to realise.
Winner of a FIPRESCI Prize at the 2011 Venice Film Festival, Ben Rivers' debut feature-length work, shot on 16mm film, extends his relationship with Jake, whom he first encountered in his short THIS IS MY LAND. The film has at its core the relationship between a person and the place they have chosen to live out their life, and the deep connection between the two.
