Product Description

What is the shortest route between Entre Ríos in Argentina and the Chinese metropolis Shanghai? Simply a straight line through the center of the earth, since the two places are antipodes: they are located diametrically opposite to each other on the earth s surface.

During his visits to four such antipodal pairs, the award-winning documentary filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky captured images that turn our view of the world upside down. A beautiful, peaceful sunset in Entre Ríos is contrasted with the bustling streets in rainy Shanghai. People who live in a wasteland are connected to people dwelling next to a volcano. Landscapes whose splendor touches the soul are juxtaposed with the clamor of a vast city. These antipodes seem mythically connected, somehow united by their oppositeness. Kossakovsky s movie is a feast for the senses, a fascinating kaleidoscope of our planet.

Special Features:

In English, Spanish, Shanghainese and Tswana with English Subtitles


A breathtaking travelogue that views the world upside down --Hollywood Reporter

I really liked the idea behind the lushly photographed "Vivan Las Antipodas." Filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky has prepared a study of contrasts when looking at the modern world. An antipode is a place on Earth that corresponds to another location if you travel directly through the planet's diameter. As so much of this world is made up of water, there aren't that many actual inhabited antipodes, but "Vivan Las Antipodas" examines four pairs. Admittedly, seven of the eight areas that we visit are sparsely populated at best. But this is more about examining images, creating a sort of visual poetry. With no narration and very little dialogue, the movie is not for every taste. But I thought it was an effective travelogue that benefited from interesting camera work, intriguing edits and transitions, and a beautiful score.

The four antipodal pairs documented:

1) The rural community of Entre Rios in Argentina is opposite the bustling vision of Shanghai, China.
2) The Patagonian area of Chile looks surprisingly similar to its antipode of Lake Baikal in Russia.
3) A sparsely populated area of volcanic activity in Hawaii is an interesting contrast to the lifestyle and wildlife of Botswana.
4) A somewhat desolate locale in Spain shares an antipode with a beach in New Zealand.

The camera glides around in "Vivan Las Antipodas" and it's both relaxing and beautiful. Some of the more spectacular images include soaring with a condor, roiling with lava, zooming along with traffic, getting up close to Africa's wildlife or spending time with a beached whale. Sometimes Kossakovsky portrays images that are sideways or upside down and this creates an extra layer of visual interest.
