Grandrieux remains relatively unknown outside art-house circles. With only four features and a documentary over nineteen years, Grandrieux has consistently redefined visual storytelling. Like a Francis Bacon painting come to life, Grandrieux's obsession with epileptic cinema and what can be described as «The Body's Night» has led to the crafting of a unique cinematic voice. With minimal dialogue and/or back story, his stories are often cryptic — so what does it take to unpack them? What is the relationship between language and the human body? Why is it that women so often dance in his films? What is his relationship to Jean Rouch and the ethnographic film? These questions and much more will be answered as we venture through the dilapidated Eastern European cities and chilling remote mountain landscapes of Grandrieux's revolutionary filmography.
