MUBI's take

This gorgeous, transfixing documentary from U.K. artist Ben Rivers is the tranquil yet fascinating study of a life of unique solitude. Using 16mm black-and-white film, Rivers captures the slow, palpable rhythms of isolation from the modern world, and a life attuned to the smallest details of nature.
