Nicolas Provost evokes the schema of the thriller and its associated aesthetics with his cinematic experiments, but there is no point in searching for the traditional relocation of the genre’s rules onto his films. The director of Moving Stories, familiar to New Horizons audiences, is not interested in the dramatic story, but rather the mechanisms that push it forward. In Tokyo Giants, he exposes the conventions and stereotypes of the dominant cinematic genre model.
Nicolas Provost was born in 1969 in Belgium. His work, consisting of short- and medium-length films, investigates the puzzles of cinematic rules. In 2011, he made his first full-length feature, The Invader. Provost’s work has screened at prestigious international festivals the world over, including Sundance, Rotterdam, Venice and Berlin. Currently, Provost lives and works in Brussels.
