Plot Summary: Seductive, fearless and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a medium, she creates performances that challenge, shock and move us. In "Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present," first-time director Matthew Akers follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major retrospective of her work at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world's premiere museums is, for any living artist, the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more: it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: “But why is this art?” With total access granted by Abramovic and MoMA -- where she sat for over 7 hours a day for 3 months silently engaging any audience member who sat opposite her -- the film is a mesmerizing cinematic journey inside the world of radical performance, and an intimate portrait of an endlessly intriguing woman who draws no distinction between life and art.
