Trees Down Here

UK 2018 14min DCP color shorts Experimental
Review

This experimental film narrates the life of Churchill College, established in 1960. In 2016, the precepts of brutalism using artificial materials were adopted to the original building. The audio-visual diversity found in the black-and-white images, pictures, blueprints, texts and ambience sounds transforms the sediments in the place into a dreamlike state. In order to experience the environment in which trees, architecture, animals and nature all co-exist, we must keep our eyes and ears open. Based on Ben Rivers’ spatial design, Expanded Plus presents Trees Down Here as a one-channel installation. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Ben RIVERS
English media artist and director Ben Rivers has a special bond with Jeonju IFF ? 11 of his works were screened. Since his short films were first screened in 2007, masterpieces from Origin Of The Species (2008) to The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers (2015) were introduced in Jeonju. Crossing between documentary, fiction and essay films, he documents how isolated and forgotten places and species evolve through a natural history-based approach. In his recent works, the scenes of disconnected people become the origin of a narrative about an imagined alternative community. Rivers’ works display the media aesthetics of “cinema” through the usage of a near-antique camera and handworked 16mm film. At this year’s festival, he presents his recent films Trees Down Here, Ghost Strata and Now, At Last!.
