MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT

Q&A with director Matthew Akers following the film

Austin Theatrical Premiere!
Winner of the Berlin Film Festival Panorama Audience Award

Beginning in the 1970s, Marina Abramovic changed the art world forever with her provocative, physically demanding, body-centric, and sometimes life-threatening performance pieces.   Chronicling the preparation for her 2010 performance retrospective at the MoMA in New York City, the film captures Marina as she looks back on her journeys as an artist.  As full of life, drama and wonder as the artist herself, MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT evokes inspiring questions about art and the human spirit. 

Acclaim:

“Easily the best documentary of the Sundance Film Festival, it's also an early contender for best doc of 2012.”
– Jesse Hawthorne, San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Breathtaking...Extraordinary. The movie’s power as a potent secondhand art high is damned near peerless.”
– David Fear, Time Out New York

“A moving and masterfully constructed exploration of what makes art—or anything else—worth doing in the first place.”
– Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
