Screening: Meurtrière [Murderess]

12 October 2017


A screening of Meurtrière will be followed by a meeting with French filmmaker Philippe Grandrieux—a senior teacher at the director’s lab of the Moscow School of New Cinema.

Meurtrière [Murderess] is the second film from Grandrieux’s trilogy on anxiety, which he started in 2012 with White Epilepsy. The object of the murder is the Thing—pointless, mad, impossible, hysterical, grotesque, phobic, dangerous, cruel, consuming, wild, sexual, unpredictable, stunning, furious, disgusting, restless, ecstatic, desired, vulgar, perverted, embarrassing, obscene, nervous, sacred, sacrificial, enraged, and murderous—the Thing, most importantly, that has no intention.

Philippe Grandrieux (b. 1954, Saint-Étienne, France) is one of the leading contemporary film directors developing a new cinematic language. Many of his works are interdisciplinary and combine film and video with new media, performance, and installation. Grandrieux’s films have been screened and received awards at the Venice Film Festival (Horizons, 2008), Locarno Film Festival (2008) and CPH:DOX International Documentary Festival in Copenhagen (2011).

During the 2017–2018 academic year Philippe Grandrieux will run an authors' cinematographic laboratory at the Moscow School of New Cinema.
