Ben Rivers (English, born 1972)
Acclaimed film-maker Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art from 1990-3. Shortly after graduating, in 1996, he became director and programmer at Brighton Cinematheque, a post he held for ten years. Since then Rivers has established himself as an innovative film-maker. His films often focus on people who are self-sufficient, exploring their personal wilderness away from modern society. This is a subject of special interest to Rivers. He uses an old, wind-up Bolex camera and develops the film himself, giving an archival-like quality to the films. This contributes to the definition of his work as somewhere between documentary and fiction.
