'The Great Basin' A Documentary by Chivas DeVinck.


THE GREAT BASIN, is a stunning feature documentary by Chivas DeVinck.

THE GREAT BASIN builds a complex panorama of rural Nevada through a tapestry of characters who work, live, and play there. The Great Basin is the location of the "Loneliest Road in America," and the film invites viewers on a road of discovery of what looks like an arid desert but turns out to be so much more.

The film is releasing in theaters with week-long runs in NYC and LA (starting November 17th) and special screening Q&As in several markets (starting November 14th).

"I am extremely honored to be partnering with Circle Collective and am thrilled that American cinemagoers will have the opportunity to see my picture. Having now screened the film abroad for over 12 months at numerous festivals, including DOK Leipzig and Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, it feels satisfying to bring the film back to its origin,” said Chiva DeVinck. "Much thanks to this partnership with Circle Collective and the first-class work from my international collaborators, my film has found re-entry back to its homeland." “From the subjects and story to filmmaking style, Chivas and his crew paint a brilliantly transgressive portrait with "The Great Basin," and we are thrilled to partner on a truly singular release for this overlooked gem,” said Kyle Greenberg, President of Circle Collective. “The film not only captures the beauty and humanity in a misinterpreted landscape and people, but interweaves a collage of characters and moments that speak to some of our most urgent call-to-actions and the evolving (and simultaneously devolving) American myths we’ve taught ourselves.”
