Seductive, fearless and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years and has become one of the most compelling artists of our time. This documentary takes us inside Marina’s world as she prepares for one of the most important moments of her life: a retrospective of her work at The Museum Of Modern Art in New York. The film follows Marina throughout the planning stages of this show, with the central focus being her hugely ambitious centrepiece, the ‘Square Of Light’ where members of the audience will be invited to join her, one at a time, with no contact or communication, as she attempts to engage in what Marina calls ‘An Energy Dialogue’. An exhilarating and mesmerising insight into this incredibly unique artist that shows Marina pushing herself beyond her mental and physical limits in the quest to challenge, shock and move us.

Director(s): Matthew Akers   Country of Origin: United States  Year: 2012
