    Leviathan is a feature-length film about men at sea and fish on boats. It offers an appreciation for the sensory experience, labor, and political and ecological stakes of one of the oldest endeavors that has been an important part of human history since the Paleolithic. Shot off the coast of the mythic city of Moby Dick, with eleven cameras swapping hands between the filmmakers and fishermen, in an effort to create a form of collective experimentation that gives free reign to the perspectives of both fishermen and their catch, the film seeks to capture the many ways in which human, animal, and machine; beauty and horror; and life and death all merge in uncanny ways in the world of contemporary commercial fishing.

    Lucien Castaing-Taylor recently recorded Sweetgrass (with Ilisa Barbash, 2009), an unsentimental elegy at once to the American West and to the 10,000 years of uneasy accommodation between post-Paleolithic humans and animals. He has just completed a related series of video installations and photographic Westerns that variously evoke the allure and ambivalence of the pastoral, including Hell Roaring Creek (2010) and The High Trail (2010). Previous works include In and Out of Africa (with Ilisa Barbash, 1992), an ethnographic video about authenticity, taste, and racial politics in the transnational African art market, and Made in USA (with Ilisa Barbash, 1990), a film about sweatshops and child labor in the Los Angeles garment industry.
