"Im into exploring the implications of the changing digital media."
Vincent Grenier will be showcasing two films for the Upstate Filmmakers Showcase series, Armoire (In 4 Parts). Combining the digital medium with an exploration in time, place and power, Grenier opens the question of reality in past, present and future.
Grenier's journey traces back to the 1970s using 16mm film. The change from film to digital has not affected Grenier's message; the exploration of digital spaces must be free and continual. Grenier personifies the technological world we live in into cohesive films, video and installations mimicking human emotion and desire.
Using 16mm, video, VHS, and HD video, Grenier is a traveling historian of technological magic, bringing the imagination of creativity to the spirit of technological innovation.
Grenier leaves us with this message:
"Ithaca is quite fortunate to have an art movie house like Cinemapolis and that it is particularly in needs of support right now as it is in the process of converting its projectors to digital. Such conversions are costly and I hope that the March 3rd FLEFF Kick Off screening can help raise some money for it."
