“The sort of movie that restores your faith in an art form - or, at the very least, in the craft of turning a bygone era's paragraphs on a page into an urgent mix of sound and vision.”~Rolling Stone

Aroview: A dazzling adaptation of Jack London's semi-autobiographical 1909 novel about a sailor who abandons his working class roots to pursue an intellectual life as a writer, after falling in love with a sophisticated and wealthy woman.

From Pietro Marcello, the director of the enthralling documentary-drama hybrid THE WOLF's MOUTH, who again uses archive footage and documentary elements to wondrous effect. Touching upon timeless themes such as the hypocrisy of class, the limitations of political and intellectual ideologies, and romanticism vs realism, this is an engrossing cinematic achievement.
