Beius

director: Ion Grigorescu
original title: Beiuș
country: Romania
year: 1978
running time: 6 min.

synopsis

A rural experiment filmed with an 8mm camera captures the Transylvanian landscape around the town of Beius. Blurred lines, warm colors, depth of space, and soothing scenes: the impression of an oil painting is disturbed by the agitated camera movements, vertical swoops, image inversions, and overlaying of shots.

biography

Ion Grigorescu (1945) studied painting and has been working intensively, but mostly in seclusion, since the 1960s. He did not fully exhibit his photographs and films publicly until after 1989. He is considered a key representative of the Romanian neo-avantgarde, whose work is represented in galleries worldwide.
