Close-Up in collaboration with LUX and Camden Arts Centre, present the third part of a screening programme which expands on Ben Rivers’ exhibition Earth Needs More Magicians and his artist-curated exhibition Edgelands at the Camden Arts Centre. 

The final part of the screening programme considers "ethnographies", a term often talked about in relation to Ben Rivers' films and the work of other experimental filmmakers including Chick Strand, Mark LaPore and Ben Russell, whose film in the programme was co-shot with Rivers and features the same footage used for Rivers's new film in the exhibition at Camden Arts Centre. 

The programme is curated by Ben Rivers with an introduction by Maria Palacios Cruz, Deputy Director at LUX.
