Review

Jan Zalasiewicz, a geology professor of the University of Leicester, explains the concept of "Ghost Strata" to Ben Rivers as elements that have disappeared from inside the surface of rocks ─ in other words, what had once been there but no longer exists. Ben Rivers was inspired by his research into geological records of 100 million years. With active exploration and research, this film is a product of geological, anthropological and archaeological studies. This edited version depicts the six-month record of the year-long chronicle. Expanded Plus presents a two-minute long edition titled as The Shape of Things. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Ben RIVERS
English media artist and director Ben Rivers has a special bond with Jeonju IFF ? 11 of his works were screened. Since his short films were first screened in 2007, masterpieces from Origin Of The Species (2008) to The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers (2015) were introduced in Jeonju. Crossing between documentary, fiction and essay films, he documents how isolated and forgotten places and species evolve through a natural history-based approach. In his recent works, the scenes of disconnected people become the origin of a narrative about an imagined alternative community. Rivers’ works display the media aesthetics of “cinema” through the usage of a near-antique camera and handworked 16mm film. At this year’s festival, he presents his recent films Trees Down Here, Ghost Strata and Now, At Last!.
