Masterclass Phillipe Grandrieux (director)

The cinema as an art of sensation
“It’s my body that gives access to the movie. The writing of the screenplay, the casting, the scouting of all the movements through which the film occupies and enters my body. The film is there, in me. In my hand. It is everywhere I am. It is waiting. While filming, the actors are caught in its light. Their body, their voice, their gestures, their desires, filter the film that escapes from me and dazzles me. It is this glare that registers and blinds me. I then go with them, with the actors, groping a film that I do not know anymore.”
