The Space in Between – Marina Abramović and Brazil 2016

86 mins Brazil Director. Marco Del Fiol

The inimitable Serbian artist Marina Abramović has long been fascinated by Brazilian mystical traditions. Seeking out methods of personal and emotional healing, she embarks on an introspective journey deep into the Brazilian interior in order to further push the limits between the physical, the spiritual and the arts.

Abramović is utterly captivating as she recounts her fearless and often jaw-dropping experiments at the hands of various mediums, crystal healers and shamans, culminating in a beguiling Ayahuasca ceremony. Director Marco Del Fiol infuses a good dose of humour to the proceedings, and employs a visual style that creates space to capture the artist engaging with nature and the elements. It’s a fascinating journey with one of the most unpredictable and mesmerising artists of our times.
