Synopsis:
"The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers" is a new feature film by award-winning British artist and filmmaker Ben Rivers. At the heart of the film's layered narratives is an adaptation of 'A Distant Episode', the savage short story set in Morocco by American author Paul Bowles, first published in 1947. Moving between documentary, fiction and fable, 'The Sky Trembles...' sees its protagonist, filmmaker Oliver Laxe, directing his own film in Morocco, 'Las Mimosas', before walking off set and into Rivers' narrative. 'The Sky Trembles...
' was shot on 16 mm against the staggering beauty of the Moroccan landscape, from the rugged terrain of the Atlas Mountains to the stark and surreal emptiness of the Sahara, with its encroaching sands and abandoned film sets. Oliver Laxe is drawn into a hallucinatory adventure of cruelty, madness and malevolence, as his narrative combines with Bowles' story and observational footage to form a multi-layered excavation into the constructs of cinema itself.
