Ben Rivers, Slow Action, (45 min.), HD Video (Blu-Ray),  (2010)

Ben Rivers, I Know Where I’m Going, (29 min.) 16 mm, (2009)

A post-apocalyptic science fiction film, Slow Action applies the idea of island biogeography—the study of how species and eco-systems evolve differently when isolated and surrounded by unsuitable habitat—to a conception of the Earth in a few hundred years.

Set outside of mainstream society, I Know Where I’m Going takes the form of a fragmented road trip where Rivers sets out to meet and interview a number of individuals living off the beaten path, while ruminating on what traces might be left of humans in 100 million years.
