Flying Fish and Dream Portraits: Short Films by Marie Losier

Marie Losier in person!
At the Velaslavasay Panorama

Marie Losier is in town to show her marvelous feature documentary The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye at Outfest on July 9, and we are delighted to host her with a selection of her short films.  These films are whimsical fantasies and fragmented portraits, the former in a tradition of Kuchar and Jack Smith, the latter capturing essential qualities of some of the great artists of our time.  Filled with color, humor, and cinematic delights, with collaborators such as Guy Maddin, Mike and George Kuchar, and Richard Foreman.” –Los Angeles Filmforum

The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye
(France , USA, 2011, 75 mins)
Directed By: Marie Losier

Presented by OUTFEST 2011
Saturday, July 9th at 7pm | REDCAT

“THE BALLAD OF GENESIS AND LADY JAYE is a tender portrait of rebel performance artist and music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV) and her soul mate and collaborator, Lady Jaye. P-Orridge’s contributions to the industrial and underground music scene in the 1970s take backseat to the couple’s great love affair and daring gender and identity transformations they underwent for their Pandrogyne project, where the pair received surgical procedures to merge into a third pandrogynous being. Winner of the Teddy for Best Documentary at 2011 Berlinale.”
