Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Filmed off the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts, at one time the whaling capital of the world as well as Melville's inspiration for Moby Dick; it is today the country's largest fishing port with over 500 ships sailing from its harbor every month. Leviathan follows one such vessel, a hulking groundfish trawler, into the surrounding murky black waters on a weeks long fishing expedition. But instead of romanticizing the labor or partaking in the longstanding tradition of turning fisherfolk into images.
