Just shoot three-minute snippets of film that you collage together. And that's the way I've always worked    

Biography

Marie Losier, born in France in 1972, is a filmmaker and curator working in New York. First, she studied literature at the University of Nanterre (France) and then Fine Arts in New York City. She has made a number of film portraits on avant-garde directors, musicians and composers such as Mike and George Kuchar, Guy Maddin, Richard Foreman, Tony Conrad and Genesis P-Orridge. Whimsical, poetic, dreamlike and unconventional, her films explore the life and work of these artists. Her films are regularly shown at prestigious art and film festivals and museums. Her first feature film is a portrait of the musical genius Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and her band Psychic TV. The work in progress was presented in 2009 at The Centre George Pompidou in April to open “Hors Pistes”, as well as at the Cinemathèque Francaise in Paris in September. In 2011 the completed result of this project, THE BALLAD OF GENESIS AND LADY JAYE, premiered in Berlinale Forum, winning the Teddy Award for Best Documentary and the Calligari Film Prize. Her latest short, L'OISEAU DE LA NUIT (2015), was selected at IndieLisboa.
