About the Movie

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining art for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle and at times risking her life in the process, she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT is 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.

Fresh: A portrait of an artist whose life and work intertwine in ways even more compelling than might be imagined. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jun 14, 2012

Fresh: In place of evenhandedness, the film gives us a full sense of a personality and intelligence so riveting that we begin to comprehend why all those hundreds of thousands lined up at the MoMA. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 6, 2012

Fresh: "She's never not performing," says one friend. And the documentary, "Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present," confirms it. – Sebastian Smee, Boston Globe, Sep 6, 2012

The Artist is Truly Present

If you are into art films, this is a MUST SEE. A fantastic film chronicling the life of Marina Abramovic's work as an artist, and a moving thinker that challenges you to think, "What is Art?", all over again. Highly Recommended!

WOW is Present

well I had never heard of Marina before this movie, to be honest with you. I thought the preview looked semi-interesting. But what sold me was watching her sit at that table in the middle of the museum looking into people’s eyes for days on end. Just looking into her eyes on the poster drew me in. What a remarkable accomplishment this movie is. I felt connected with the artist the entire movie and found myself wanting more of her. More of her time. More of her love. More of her energy. She truly gave herself to her audience during this showing and I for one am grateful for the experience. Thank you for the great movie. Loved discovering this real treasure.


Love the documentary.
