Johan Grimonprez
Praised by the London and the New York Times as "an eccentric rollercoaster ride through history," Johan Grimonprez’ film Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997), an exploration into the annals of airplane hijacking, garnered best director awards at the SAN FRANSISCO Film Festival and IMAGES TORONTO. Since its acclaimed premiere at CENTRE GEORGES POMPIDOU (Paris) and DOCUMENTA X (Kassel), the film has toured worldwide. The DVD, accompanied by contributions from DON DELILLO and SLAVOJ ZIZEK, is released by OTHER CINEMA (San Francisco), and in distribution with FACETS/MULTIMEDIA (Chicago) and IMAGEFORUM (Tokyo).

Johan Grimonprez is currently a faculty member at the SCHOOL OF VISUAL ARTS (New York). Acquisitioned by Trio NBC Universal (New York), ARTE TV (Germany/France), and Channel 4 (UK), his productions traveled the main festival circuit from TELLURIDE, TOKYO to BERLIN. Curatorial projects were host at major exhibitions and museums worldwide such as the WHITNEY MUSEUM (New York) and TATE MODERN (London); and amongst numerous collections they reside at the CENTRE GEORGES POMPIDOU (Paris), the KANAZAWA ART MUSEUM (Japan), and the NATIONALGALLERIE (Berlin). He is published with Hatje/Cantz (Germany) and spends his time between New York and Brussels.

In collaboration with ANNA SANDERS FILMS, (Paris), his production company ZAP-O-MATIK, is currently launching "LOOKING FOR ALFRED" (2006), a journey into the world of doppelgangers, starring Ron Burrage, professional Hitchcock look-alike. A first chapter premiered at the PHOTOGRAPHER’S GALLERY (London) and the PALAIS DES BEAUX-ARTS (Brussels). Acclaimed by the London Times, a.o., it won first price for the INTERNATIONAL MEDIA AWARD 2005 (SWR / ZKM).
