Filmed in the lost territories of the Balkans, Ruins Rider portrays the secret ruins that triggered trances over the past centuries. Using an array of hypnotic pulsating flickers, filmmaker Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt conceived an explosive kinetic experience. Accompanied by a powerful soundtrack by Marc Hurtado of the cult project Étant Donnés, Ruins Rider is a visceral experience of hypnagogic archeology and raw energy. 

Working within the ontological fabric of reality, filmmaker Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt explores the wild territories of trance, technological liminality and experimental archeology. His work has been described as cultural guerrilla of striking force and aims to produce visceral and hypnotic experiences marked by a powerful energy charge. Vaillancourt’s films and videos have been presented at the Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art, Russia National Centre for Contemporary Arts, Lausanne Underground Film Festival, Kiev Foundation for Contemporary Art, Festival du nouveau cinema de Montreal, Fylkingen, Raw Territories Gatherings, Bunkier Sztuki, Wro Art Center and in many international festivals, museums and cinematheques.

RUINS RIDER

Ruins Rider is marked as the most powerful of the films that I have seen. It’s a real subject explored with great energy using the new art of the computer to great effect and viscerally stimulating. There is history and ideas and technological wizardry.
— FILMMAKER, WRITER & PHOTOGRAPHER TIMOTHY NEAT
Remarkable, invigorating and immersive work. A deeply committed and brilliantly hypnotic film. Powerful.

— ALCHEMY FILM & MOVING IMAGE FESTIVAL
Ruins Rider is an atlas of power-zones. A magical current is charged through the act of filming, flowing through my whole body and mind, piercing through the image. This life force guided my shooting, deeply fusing the mythical portals and the volcanoes of my consciousness. This approach is sustained by a meticulous and deep dedication to the transmutation process of the hypnotic ruins, the image’s revelatory nature and within my own cognitive’s elemental structure. The pulsating and magnetic ruins embody the numinous fire and limitless light. High voltage telluric blast.
