The cinematographic and intimate version of Ariane Moffatts newest album. Punctuated by a rich visual universe, this performance is an attempt to resist the headwinds. An oscillation between the sublime and the helpless.

Charles Grenier

Charles Grenier

Charles Grenier was born somewhere between Christmas and New Year’s Day 1988. Aside from being stuck between two holidays, Charles is a director and editor.

After completing a bachelor’s degree in film production and a minor in philosophy at Concordia University in 2010, he edited more than a dozen short films including Amen by Marie-Hélène Viens and Philippe Lupien (Regard sur le court-métrage) and Mon Boy by Sarah Pellerin (TIFF). For the web, he edited the first season of Écrivain public, directed by Hervé Baillargeon, and won the best editing award at the Marseille Web Fest for Féminin Féminin by Chloé Robichaud.

As a director, his work, whether comedic or dramatic, relies on the unspoken and on evocative and meaningful images. Whether he is exploring escapism (Étanche, 2013, Edinburgh Int. Film Festival), coming-of-age (Chelem, 2015, Raindance & Seattle Int. Film Festival), or the awakening of sexuality (Slurpee, 2016, Dresden & Palm Springs), his vision remains honest and sensitive. His most recent short film, Le ver, 2018 (FNC & FCIAT), combines fantasy storytelling with a reflection on the mysteries of filiation and heritage.

He recently signed on to direct the web series Georges est mort online at télé-québec.tv, and is working with Sarah Pellerin to develop the second season.
