Alain Guiraudie

Alain Guiraudie, born 1964 in Aveyron, France, belongs to the most compelling voices in contemporary cinema. Spirited, erotic and idiosyncratic, his films employ fable and fairy-tale modes to enact a vision of queer sexuality that is both playful and deeply philosophical. Inhabiting a rural France rarely seen in cinema, his characters frequently set off on picaresque adventures that depart from reality to enter a subconscious realm, where death and desire intermingle and conventions are ecstatically dismantled.

Following a number of shorts in the nineties, Guiraudie broke onto the scene in 2001 with the two mid-length features Sunshine for the Poor and That Old Dream That Moves. His films have since travelled widely and garnered numerous awards, including the Queer Palm and the Best Director’s Prize for Stranger by the Lake, which competed in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section in 2013. His latest feature, Staying Vertical, was nominated for the Palme d’Or in 2016.
