Plot & Details

One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, from the directors of 'Sweetgrass' and 'Foreign Parts', 'Leviathan' is a thrilling, immersive documentary that takes you 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.
