Here’s the Very Wet Trailer for Leviathan, a Documentary About Commercial Fishing


Directors Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel followed the crew of a commercial fishing trawler out to sea and filmed Leviathan entirely aboard the ship, as well as in the water just off the Massachusetts coast. They used “small, waterproof digital cameras that were variously tethered to the fishermen, tossed in with their dead or dying catch and plunged into the roiling ocean,” the Times reported last year, and if this trailer is any indication, the result is a dark, run-on dream of a movie, filled with blood, seawater, gulls, and fish. Count us in! The movie, which really looks incredible, will be in select theaters on March 1.
