    22:30 | The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers (2015 / Drama / Switzerland / 100min) by Ben Rivers with Oliver Laxe.
    At John dos Passos cultural centre.

    Shooting against the staggering beauty of the Moroccan landscape, from the rugged terrain of the Atlas Mountains to the stark and surreal emptiness of the desert, with its encroaching sands, a director abandons his own film set and descends into a hallucinatory, perilous adventure of cruelty, madness and malevolence. A Paul Bowles story combined with observational footage forms a multi-layered excavation into the illusion of cinema itself.
