The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers
First screened in September 2015
Director: Ben Rivers. Cast: Oliver Laxe. Screenplay: Ben Rivers.

Twitter Capsule: As elaborate and idiosyncratic as it is, the postcolonial metaphors become a bit flat and static.

VOR:   The metafilmic conceits are nifty if not entirely new. The long, nonnarrative middle clearly involves swimming against lots of cinematic grains, but is also a mite dogmatic.
