    Documentary, Short

    Bim bam boom, meet the Moreno sisters! Three women, three sisters, three professional luchadoras. Under the name Las Luchas Morenas they practice the Mexican national sport: wrestling! All three are part of the Dynasty Moreno: Rossy, Esther, and Cynthia are competitive wrestlers on the ring. But they also bring Lucha Libre into life, wrestling with knives, pig heads, flowers and feathers! Marie Losier‘s characteristic whirring camera swirls curiously around them and captures it all in a cheerful and musical tribute to fantasy, to the child in all adults, and to Mexican culture. But it is ultimately a tribute to the three women, who in spite of all their differences have chosen to lead their lives according to their own ideas.

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

    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 documentary FELIX IN WONDERLAND (2019) was selected in the Fuori Concorso section at Locarno FF.
