Q+A with Ben Rivers – A Spell to Ward off Darkness

7 January 2014

Following the screening of A Spell to Ward of Darkness a captivating film that follows a nameless protagonist (played by musician Robert AA Lowe, aka Lichens) at three disparate, existential moments in his life: as a member of a commune on a small Estonian island; living alone in the breathtaking wilderness of northern Finland. We had the opportunity to catch on camera one of the award winning artists/directors of the film Ben Rivers (TWO YEARS AT SEA) about his experience of shooting on Super-16, entering these unique communities and his collaboration with other award winning artist Ben Russell.
