UK / USA (MIFF 2008, Free Radicals)
Director: Ben Rivers & Ben Russell
Ten visionary cinematic dispatches from two of contemporary experimental film's most uncompromising artists.
Ranging from mind-blowing psychedelia to trance film documentary to Scottish hermit ethnography (in Cinemascope!), these films sketch a portrait of a modern world in increasingly hopeful disarray.
Ben Rivers and Ben Russell are guests of the festival
