PlacePrints - a 10-part audio series

Each audio piece will be accompanied by a short film shot on location by the multi-award winning filmmaker Grant Gee.

Grant Gee is a filmmaker from Brighton, England.

His most recent feature, Innocence of Memories, with original narration by Nobel Laureate, Orhan Pamuk premiered at the 2015 Venice Film Festival and was released in cinemas throughout Europe in 2016. He also worked with Pamuk (providing seven screens of video installation) on the exhibition The Museum of Innocence at Somerset House, London in Feb 2016.

From 2012 to 2015 he collaborated (as Video Director) with theatre director Katie Mitchell on high profile Live Cinema projects at flagship European theatres and museums. These include productions of Michael Handke's A Sorrow Beyond Dreams at the Burgtheater, Vienna, The Yellow Wallpaper at Schaubuhne, Berlin and the film/painting installation Sickert and The Three Graces for the Victoria and Albert Museum. In 2018 he will work with Mitchell again on an adaptation of Maguerite Duras' La Maladie de la Mort at Le Bouffe du Nord, Paris.

In 2012, his film Patience (After Sebald) - about W.G. Sebala's The Rings of Saturn - premiered at the New York Film Festival and had successful theatrical releases through Soda Pictures in the UK and Cinema Guild in the US.

His documentary Joy Division, premiered at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival, and won the Grierson award 2008 for Best Cinema Documentary and the Mojo Vision Award 2009, CPH:DOX festival's (Copenhagen) Sound and Vision award for Best Music Film (2008) and the Audience Awards for Best Film at both Gdansk and 'In Edit' Barcelona; (also 2008).

Also in 2007, his film The Western Lands, a portrait of climber/writer Jim Perrin's climb of The Old Man of Hoy, won best short film at the Banff Film Festival.

In a previous life he directed many many music videos including the iconic clip for Radiohead's No Surprises as well as the notoriously bad-tempered, 500,000 DVD-selling film Meeting People is Easy about the band. He is currently developing a drama feature, Intermission (with Hot Property Films) about the jazz musician Bill Evans, and a (mostly) non-fiction project, The Gold Machine, with writer Iain Sinclair. He is also in production on a documentary following Gare St Lazare Ireland's five year mission to adapt Samuel Beckett's previously unperformed novel How It Is for theatre.

He has recently completed The True History of the 100 Mile City, a short, architectural essay film in collaboration with architect Peter Barber and is currently (December 2018) editing 'Cycle' (working title) with directors Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Adrian Jackson for Artangel.
