The Sky Trembles and the Earth is Afraid and the Two Eyes are not Brothers DVD PRE-ORDER

 

A director abandons his film. Part documentary, part fable, Ben Rivers rethinks Paul Bowles's brutal short story A Distant Episode (1947). Shot in 16mm against the dizzying landscape of the Atlas Mountains and the desert sands of the Moroccan Sahara, Rivers's footage takes the viewer on several parallel journeys through documentary and fiction.

The camera tracks real film director Oliver Laxe, also on location in Morocco shooting his own film Las Mimosas. Abandoning set and crew, Laxe begins to take on the role of Bowles's protagonist, a professor of linguistics travelling through Morocco in the late 1940s whose rapid descent into misadventure and madness gives Rivers' film a chilling change of direction.

THE SKY TREMBLES AND THE EARTH IS AFRAID AND THE TWO EYES ARE NOT BROTHERS had its world premiere at Festival del film Locarno 12 14 August 2015 and will be screened in UK cinemas from 6 May 2016. Please see below for upcoming screenings.

Some of the raw footage from this film was included in The Two Eyes Are Not Brothers, an installation by Ben Rivers in studios at BBC TV Centre in London.
