    SWEETGRASS

    Ilisa Barbash, Lucien Castaing-Taylor United States, 2009

    This breathtaking view of the American West revealed the groundbreaking vision of Lucien Castaing-Taylor & Ilisa Barbash from Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab (Leviathan) through its visual and aural pleasures. Newly restored, Sweetgrass is one of the defining documentaries of this century.

    MANAKAMANA

    Stephanie Spray, Pacho Velez Nepal, 2013

    This risk-taking, radically immersive documentary from Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab strips cinema to its essentials, locking down the camera and letting us observe all kinds of people as they travel to a sacred temple. A serene project that experiments with form while staying powerfully humane.
