Leviathan (2012), Lucien Castaing-Taylor & Véréna Paravel, 87 minutes

Castaing-Taylor (*1966, Liverpool) and Paravel (*1971, Neuchâtel) work together as anthropologues, artists et filmmaker, within the framwork of Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab, an experimentation plateform which aims at question issues related to human sciences through creative audiovisual approaches rather than by written word, commonlyused in this domain. In this film, they chose small GoPro cameras that they fixed on the fishermen’s helmets, on the ropes and chains or on poles allowing them to film both above and under the water.
