Leviathan is an experimental documentary by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel on the North American commercial fishing industry. This film is an accompaniment to another Platypus event held at NSCAD's Fountain Campus, "Can there be a working class culture & experience?" panel discussion the following Monday. You're invited to join us for both events which seek to explore the concept of working-class culture, its history, and what it might mean today.

In the very waters where Melville’s Pequod gave chase to Moby Dick, Leviathan captures the collaborative clash of man, nature, and machine. shot on a dozen cameras — tossed and tethered, passed from fisherman to filmmaker — it is a cosmic portrait of one of mankind’s oldest endeavours.

“visually ravishing. leviathan is in every way sensational.”
