This programme of Ben Rivers’ early short films present a series of portraits of unconventional lives – of people existing, to varying degrees, in wilderness or isolation. Rivers’ films are compassionate and elliptical, ambiguous documents of both the reality of life outside urban norms and our own Romantic preconceptions of a life beyond bounds.
Ben Rivers: Shorts will be introduced by Dr Kayla Parker (Plymouth University) and followed by an informal discussion in the bar.
Supported by Moving Image Arts (MIA) Research at Plymouth University.
