Interesting film, I've seen it on PBS before.
About the film: (Matthew Akers, 2011, DCP, 106 minutes) Over half a million visitors to Marina Abramović's groundbreaking 2010 Museum of Modern Art retrospective lined up for hours for the most alluring aspect of this show--a chance to sit opposite Marina at a table and silently stare, as she stared back. This film chronicles not only the landmark exhibition but the intriguingly evocative career of this Serbia-born, New York–based performance artist, one of the most charismatic public figures of our time.
