Lecture ECAL - Alain Guiraudie
Auditorium Leenaards, ECAL

Invited by ECAL Cinema and Fine Arts departments, the French director and artist Alain Guiraudie will give a lecture on Tuesday April 18, 2023 at 6pm.

Born in 1964, Alain Guiraudie grew up in Bournazel, a village in Aveyron where his parents were farmers. After high school, he studied History in Montpellier, but stopped to work and write novels that were not published.

Having above all the desire to make films, he directed a first short film, Les héros sont immortels, in 1990, followed by a second and a third. This led him to make longer films, including Du soleil pour les gueux in 2000 and Ce vieux rêve qui bouge in 2001.

He has since directed 6 feature films including L'Inconnu du lac and Rester vertical. The latest one, Viens je t'emmène, was released in March 2022.

He has also published two novels with P.O.L.: Ici commence la nuit in 2014 and Rabalaïre in 2021.

He will exhibit for the first time at Panorama 2019, then at the Crèvecœur Gallery in Paris, at the Consortium Museum in Dijon and at the Daniel Buccholz Gallery in Berlin in 2023.

Moderated by Paolo Moretti, head of the Cinema department and Stéphanie Moisdon, head of Master of Fine Arts.
