What is the origin of image we see from cinema? With this confusing but basic question, White Epilepsy opens the first chapter of Grandrieux’s search for image. The film displays neurotic images to the mind of viewers. Crossed with dream and nightmare, it begins with a slow scene of the back of bare body. It unfolds with the relation of body and sexuality, dreadful scenes, and rhythmic shifts of scenes in an unfamiliar way. He shows his unique combination of image and sound through images of body shapes. It creates a mysterious state of images that flows in the dark. Based on a radical perspective of film language, he explores the relation of image and senses, excluding narrative and emotions. (JANG Byungwon)

He also directed White Epilepsy, Meurtriere, and Despite the Night which is his latest work.
In the heart of the forest an ancient archaic humanity rehearses scenes taken from a ceremony. It is a dream, or a nightmare. The story is woven with fear, sexuality and animalism.
