Dir. Matthew Akers / USA / 2012 / 106 min.
Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits – and at times risking her life in the process – she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time. (Contains nudity and disturbing images). “Breathtaking…Extraordinary. The movie’s power as a potent, second-hand art is damn near peerless.” –Time Out New York
