Phillippe Grandieux‘s directing style produces moments and experiences so palpable and strange that everything else seems prosaic in comparison. It is why he was chosen as one of seven directors for Fergus Daly‘s documentary Experimental Conversations (2006)—a project which sought out seven avant-garde directors to discuss what experimental cinema is on their own terms. Grandieux has much to say about the sensory experiences that cinema can offer; an idea consistently explored through his own films using off-kilter camera movements and heavy experimentation with audio, light and color (“an extraordinary enrichment of the pallete” as guest film scholar Nicole Brenez aptly puts it). Brenez and Grandieux offer expository commentary on the important relationship between the formal properties of cinema and the viewer’s sensations and perception of the images.
