¡Vivan las Antipodas!

Saturday 1st March 11:15 AM - Rheged
¡Vivan las Antipodas!
Director:Victor Kossakovsky
Cert:U Year: 2011 Length:108mins
Country:Argentina
A brightly original and, for once, entirely positive take on the planet Earth, Vivan las Antipodas! is a standout documentary with the curious premise that, given the ocean mass, only a few inhabited places are exactly opposite each other on this planet, like Argentina and Shanghai, or Hawaii and Botswana. This exquisitely shot and produced travelogue compares not just places but the people, flora and fauna that are "upside down" from one another. Hypnotic travelling shots and twisted perspectives add another feather in the cap of prize-winning Russian cameraman and director Victor Kossakovsky.

Critics

“By the end of the film, the Earth is criss-crossed with mini-narratives that give a sense of the grand family of human beings and, overall, how beautiful and varied our world is.”
