Filmmaker Johan Grimonprez TalkOctober 24, 7:00pm - 8:15pm
Mānoa Campus, ART 101
Filmmaker Johan Grimonprez talks about his work via Skype. The ART gallery will be open for viewing half hour before the talk.
In provocative and groundbreaking film essays and video installations artist and filmmaker Johan Grimonprez explores the evasive effects of media illusion on historical memory. Grimonprez is best known for his films Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997), a critically-acclaimed examination of representations of airplane hijackings, Double Take (2009), a poetic interpretation of Cold War politics told through Alfred Hitchcock's eyes, and Shadow World (2017) an exposé of the weapons-trade deals. Using a combination of found footage and scripted fictional scenarios, Grimonprez invokes the "double take," that uncanny feeling that one has missed something the first time around and needs to look again. Can the "double take" invite the spectator to negotiate the difference between fact and fiction in our ever more mediated political arena?
