Maximilian Le Cain

Maximilian Le Cain has created a prolific and acclaimed body of moving image work including features, shorts, installations and film-related performances. His filmmaking proposes a personal relationship with cinema as a site of haunting. Accepted visual and storytelling codes are encouraged to collapse into a more personalised system that approaches moving imagery as an experiential construct open to possession by multiple claims of memory and interpretation.

Cain is currently completing Solitaire (2023), a feature made
with the support of an Arts Council Project Award. Recent works include Daughter
of the Sun
 (2021), a short based on the Irish legend of the Cailleach
Beara that screened at the 2022 Cork International Film Festival; and Blissed (2022),
a feature presented at ECRÃ Festival, Brazil. He created an expanded cinema
performance, Two Times in One Space, for Oberhausen Film Festival
2022 in collaboration with Léa Lanoë.  

Le Cain is affiliated with Experimental Film Society (EFS), a Dublin-based
company dedicated to the production and distribution of experimental cinema.
His work featured in an exhibition and event series at Project Arts Centre,
Dublin in May/June 2021 to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of EFS. He
frequently works in partnership with Vicky Langan. Their decade-long collaboration
has created an intimate but unsettling personal universe in film and
performance. He is also a programmer and writer on cinema.
