Focus on Ben Rivers

Together with STUK, we zoom in on artist and filmmaker Ben Rivers. In his work, Rivers explores the boundary between fiction and non-fiction. In 2016, he and co-director Gabriel Abrantes completely convinced the jury of Kortfilmfestival Leuven with their fascinating short film The Hunchback. As a result, they rightly went home with the jury prize for Best European Short Film. After the screenings on 30/11 and 2/12, you can participate in a guided tour of the expo, thanks to STUK.

Expo: Ben Rivers - It's About Time

Complementary to the short film programme around Ben Rivers, you can also visit his first Belgian solo exhibition at STUK. He translated his fascination with time into four film installations, supplemented with photographs, drawings and paintings. Rivers explores how 'time' works and how cinema can shape conceptions of the present and past.
