The director will be present.
Filmmaker and curator Marie Losier creates unconventional documentary film portraits of heroes, personal friends and idols from the underground movie scene. Her work is shown in important museums, renowned festivals, movie theaters and galleries all over the world. From the Tate Modern to the Centre Pompidou; from the International Film Festival in Rotterdam to the Cinémathèque française, many important museums and festivals show her films regularly. She was invited to the Whitney Biennial in New York in 2006 and, recently, the Berlinale Film Festival, the Harvard Film Archive, Cornell Cinema and film festivals in Seattle, Bafici and Gijon all dedicated retrospectives to her work. In 2012 she had her breakthrough in the German film scene with The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye (USA/F 2011).
Most of Marie Losier’s films to date have been filmic portraits of avant-garde film directors such as Mike and George Kuchar, Guy Maddin, Richard Foreman, Ken Jacobs and Tony Conrad. And her protagonists praise her exuberantly. The performance artist and musician Genesis Breyer P-Orridge refers to her as the “Fellini of documentary filmmakers.” According to Guy Maddin, Marie Losier is “the most effervescent and psychologically accurate portrait artist” in the film industry today. He continues, “No one makes pictures like Marie, Edith Sitwell’s inner Tinkerbell!”

In cooperation with the Kino Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art.
