Eric Baudelaire is a French artist and filmmaker. His first feature, The Anabasis of May and Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi and 27 Years Without Images (2011) retraced the revolutionary wanderings of the Japanese Red Army between Beirut and Tokyo. It premiered at FIDMarseille and won the Special Jury Prize at DocLisboa. The Ugly One (2013), which premiered at Locarno, was his first narrative feature. Also made in collaboration with underground filmmaker and former Red Army militant Masao Adachi, the film extended, through fiction, questions of resistance and regret raised in The Anabasis… Baudelaire’s research-based practice also includes photography, printmaking and publications which have been shown in installations alongside his films in solo exhibitions at Bétonsalon in Paris, the Bergen Kunsthall, the Beirut Art Center, Gasworks in London, the Taipei Biennial 2012, and Berlin Documentary Forum 2.
