Renée Green: Inevitable Distances Artist talk with Renée Green and Karim Aïnouz
As filmmakers and friends, Karim Aïnouz and Renée Green have moved through overlapping social spaces and places together. For this public dialogue, the pair meet to reflect on shared times and individual works, and present excerpts of their moving image work—including Aïnouz film Seams, which used Green’s installation Sites of Genealogy as a film set; and Green’s film Come Closer featuring Aïnouz—as context of how their ongoing interests continue to inform their work in intimate and open ways.

Karim Aïnouz is an award-winning filmmaker, screenwriter and visual artist. He debuted as a director with MADAME SATÃ (Cannes Un Certain, Regard 2002). His other works include MARINER OF THE MOUNTAINS (Official Selection Cannes, 2021), NARDJES A.

INVISIBLE LIFE, Aïnouz’s latest feature film, won the Un Certain Regard Prize at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and has been the recipient of several prizes worldwide. Aïnouz is a screenwriter tutor and member of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.
