Part of Living Roots

Look Then Below

Ben Rivers

United Kingdom – 2019
Video – duration 22 min

Ben Rivers is fascinated by the otherworldly, looking for places and stories outside the daily conventions of reality. In this unique film, we are introduced to the futuristic beings that populate an eerie smoke-filled landscape in the depths of the earth. Look Then Below was shot in the vast, dark passages of the Wookey Hole caves in Somerset, United Kingdom. This world of chambers, carved out in the course of ancient times, still holds remnants of lost prehistoric civilisations. This set the stage for a mysterious, future underground world with new inhabitants: a new species that evolved from our ecologic disasters.
