The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers
The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers
2015 United Kingdom 98 min N-13
Added to my films
A labyrinthine and epic film that moves between documentary, fiction and fable. Shooting against the staggering beauty of the Moroccan landscape, from the rugged terrain of the Atlas Mountains to the stark and surreal emptiness of the Moroccan Sahara, with its encroaching sands and abandoned film sets, a director abandons his film set descending into a hallucinatory, perilous adventure of cruelty, madness and malevolence. A Paul Bowles story combined with observational footage forms a multi-layered excavation into the illusion of cinema itself.
