Domaine Mercouri is happy to open its doors and present the Canadian director, researcher and founder of the Institute for Exploratory Cinemas (Canada), Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt (1985).
Organizing for the second consecutive year the artists residency program in collaboration with the platform Create an Accident, it brings artists from around the world to the local community and builds bridges of dialogue between different cultures.
This year’s guest Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt will present his multifaceted involvement with Canadian experimental cinema at the Station of Literature and Art at the Domaine Mercouri.
In the first part of the event, the audience will have the opportunity to watch the video installation from the director of “NINE BLACK EGGS”.
A small tribute to the experimental cinema of Canada, from 1960 to today, and a discussion with Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt will form the second part of the event. It will conclude with the showing of, for the first time in Greece, the short film “LA NUIT OBSCURE” (29 min.), which is based on the provocative novel by Georges Bataille The Dead.
The films and video installations of Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt have been presented in Japan, Croatia, Poland, Russia and Sweden. In recent years, he has curated more than fifty film events and tributes around the world, organizing screenings and collaborations that test the limits of experimental film and broaden the ties and practices of the artistic community.
The event is addressed to adults.
