Mihai GRECU (1981, Romania) is an artist and filmmaker. He studied art and design in Romania and France, and continued his artistic research at the Fresnoy Studio of Contemporary Arts. Recurring topics such as environmental crisis, political allegories, new technologies and catastrophes articulate the whole of his exploration of mysterious and subconscious beginnings. These visual and poetic trips mix several techniques and may be seen as propositions for a new dream-oriented technology. Grecu's work has been shown and awarded in numerous exhibitions and film festivals in Tribeca, Locarno, Rotterdam, Festival of New Cinema in Montreal and other places. Nicolae, world premiere at IFFR 2022, is a creative documentary in which the late Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu, who died in 1989, is recreated as a hologram and projected in today's Romania.
