Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present

Documentary, Biography 1h 46m 2012

AroView: Mesmerising arts documentary that follows the Serbian-born veteran performance artist as she prepares for a retrospective of her work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Cuts measurably deeper than the usual portrait of an artist by extending to the viewer the emotive connection that the artist has with her audience. In a world often populated by fashionistas and dilettantes, the engaging Abramovic comes off as the real thing, the film detailing her history of rigorous commitment to intelligent provocation while building to a climax of uncommon and unexpected impact.

“If you’re skeptical about performance art, this might just change your mind.” ~ Total Film.
