A Distant Episode

Director/ DP/ Editor: Ben Rivers

Producers: Jacqui Davies and Ben Rivers

Sound: Carles Santos

1st AD: Lina Laraki

A meditation on the illusion of filmmaking, shot behind-the-scenes on a film being made on the otherworldly beaches of Sidi Ifni, Morocco. The film depicts strange activities, with no commentary or dialogue. It appears as a fragment of film, dug up in a distant future - a hazy, black and white, hallucinogenic world.
