Marina Abramović The Artist Is PresentDirected by Matthew Akers
U.S.A., 2012, 105 min.
Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović draws no distinction between life and art and has been redefining performance art for nearly 40 years. Using her body as a medium, and pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits, Abramović creates emotionally provocative work that transgresses boundaries and expands consciousness. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time. Akers takes us inside the world of radical performance, mining Abramovićís creative process and granting audiences the coveted experience of sitting across from the artist during the most important show of her career.
