A talk and screening from filmmaker Ben Rivers. His films are intimate portrayals of solitary beings or isolated communities, between documentary and fiction.

Ben Rivers was born in Somerset, UK in 1972 and lives and works in London. Rivers’ films are typically intimate portrayals of solitary beings or isolated communities. His practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Rivers uses these themes as a starting point from which to imagine alternative narratives and existences in marginal worlds.
