Review

Ben Rivers’ Now, At Last! extracts the essence of cinema from an animal’s movement. To show the endless postponement of time, Ben Rivers takes a close look at a sloth climbing a tree. The running has been extended to 40 minutes because it deals with duration in accordance with film-movements. As the sloth moves slowly from the bottom up to the middle of a tree, it faces two changing points. At two points during the film ─ once when the sloth reaches the middle of the branch and the film reaches 25 minutes ─ the image changes to the full color vision. Expanded Plus presents a five-minute long edition titled You Can’t Imagine Nothing. [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!.
