Diana Vidrașcu (1987, Romania) is a filmmaker based in Paris, France. Working with film, photography and installation, Diana Vidrascu questions the narrative devices of cinema by challenging the limits of the narrative discourse and codes of the film genres. Her films reveal a meditation on the visual language. The storytelling displays interruptions in the logic flow of events, creating parallels with the fragility of memory and the personal perception of time.

She studied Cinematography at the National Film Academy in Bucharest, then continued to work mainly as a director of photography on fiction and documentary projects. For the past 10 years she’s been shooting projects internationally with film directors and contemporary artists alike, such as: Mondkopf, Louis Henderson, Emilija Skarnulyte, Ulla von Brandenburg, Peter Snowdon, among many others.

She debuted as a director in 2017 and her films screened in international festivals like: Locarno Film Festival, Berlinale Forum Expanded, IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam, BFI London Film Festival Experimenta, Chicago International Film Festival, etc. Her latest video performance for Mondkopf’s live act “How Deep is Our Love” (2019) was performed at Whitechapel Gallery London and La Villette Sonique Paris.
