Maria Abramovic: The Artist is Present, opens in select US theaters June 13, 2012: http://ldig.it/KH9Hsg.
Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly forty 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.
Elevating traditional documentary techniques with an artistic gloss befitting its subject, Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present is by no means a typical "art film." With total access granted by Abramović and The Museum of Modern Art, Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present is instead a mesmerizing cinematic journey inside the world of radical performance, and an intimate portrait of an astonishingly magnetic, endlessly intriguing woman who draws no distinction between life and art.
