Award-winning artist and experimental filmmaker based in London. His practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, Rivers provides himself with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds. His films have screened worldwide at numerous festivals including Rotterdam FF, where he twice won a Tiger Award for short films. His feature A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARKNESS premiered at Locarno IFF and won top prizes at CPH:DOX and Torino FF.
