This new LUX touring programme brings together five early shorts by Ben Rivers - The Coming Race; This Is My Land; A World Rattled of Habit; Origin of the Species, Ah, Liberty - which together present a series of portraits of unconventional lives - of people existing, to varying degrees, in wilderness or isolation. River's films are compassionate and elliptical, ambigious documents of both the reality of life outside urban norms and our own Romantic preconceptions of a life beyond bounds. The programme includes This Is My Land, Rivers' first portrait of Jake Williams, later the subject of Two Years at Sea.
