Performance artist Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. During a three-month retrospective of her work at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 2010, she gave the performance of her career. For seven and a half hours a day, she sat silently at a table without eating, drinking or moving, as onlookers were invited to sit across from her. This film examines her career and follows the artist as she prepares herself for the undertaking with discipline, humor and guile. (Matthew Akers, 2012, 105 min.) Reception to follow screening.
