Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present follows the artist as she prepares for a MoMA retrospective of her work.

"Marina Abramović is one of the most compelling artists of our time. Seductive, fearless and outrageous, she 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, Marina 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."

Initial release: 13 June, 2012 
Director: Matthew Akers 
Running time: 106 minutes 
Rating: 7.9/10 on IMDb

    Online sales now closed with just 10 seats taken. Hopefully the rest of you are planning on cash door sales! We'll make a hefty loss on this one but the show goes on.

    You'll love this film and the excellently comfy screen 3 at the Light House, and please look after your host for this evening, Guy Stapleton.

    Since I still haven't had confirmation that this film has arrived, would there still be interest in watching this if we postponed a few weeks? Not ideal I know.

      You coming with me to this one Sue? Hope so.

      October 23

    • Sue H.

      Definitely. Tickets not for sale yet though.

    Evening all. The only update is that I don't know what is going on with the distributor for this one. We've dealt with them twice before with no problem yet this time things are proving to be very difficult and slow. There is no excuse really, as we made the order back in June and have chased up regularly. The LightHouse cinema are helping out by chasing up (they have a longer relationship with the distributor). All seems very odd to me.

  • Carol M

    all the best for you and your family Dave - exciting !

  • Sue H.

    (a) looking forward to this one and (b) hope it all goes well.

  • Dave K.

    Waiting on final confirmation from the distributor on this one - as they're doing things differently this time. Should be sorted this week, then I'll sort out ticketing :) Sorry if I'm slow at the mo ... we're due to have another baby any time now.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
