Return of the New-Recent Film/Video Works from the UK: Two Years at Sea

ICA screened Ben Rivers’s Two Years at Sea, winner of the FIPRESCI Prize (Critics’ Week and Horizons sections), Venice Film Festival 2011, at International House. In the film, a man called Jake lives in the middle of the forest. He goes for walks in whatever the weather, and takes naps in the misty fields and woods. He builds a raft to spend time sitting in a loch. Drives a beat-up jeep to pick up wood supplies. He is seen in all seasons, surviving frugally, passing the time with strange projects, living the radical dream he had as a younger man, a dream he spent two years working at sea to realize.
