(1987, Romania) is a filmmaker and artist based in Paris, France. In her films, photography and installations, Vidrașcu examines analogue film techniques, thereby questioning the cinematic medium’s codes and conventions. By consistently interrupting the logical sequence of events she underlines memory’s fallibility as well as our subjective, individual experiences of time and reality.
Vidrașcu studied Cinematography in Bucharest and subsequently moved to Paris. She has worked as director of photography for Emilija Skarnulyte, Ulla von Brandenburg, Peter Snowdon, among others. She debuted as a filmmaker in 2017 with the short films What Time Is Made Of
and Gylfaginning – The Deluding of King Gylfi
, both of which were shown at international festivals. Silence of the Sirens
(2019), Vidrascu’s free adaptation of a Kafka short story, had its world premiere at IFFR Rotterdam and was presented as a film installation in the Berlinale Forum Expanded 2019. Her latest installation Vulcão: O que sonha um lago?
was developed during the Walk&Talk artist residency 2018-2019.
