Sinopsis

Spanish premiere

This is a love story, and a portrait of two lives that illustrate the transformative powers of both love and art. Marie Losier brings to us the most intimate details of Genesis P-Orridge’s extraordinary, uncanny world. He has been one of the most innovative and influential figures in music and fine art for the last 30 years and the founder of the legendary groups COUM Transmissions, Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV and was also celebrated by critics and art historians as a progenitor of “industrial music” due to his capacity to transform the character of rock and electronic music. Defying artistic boundaries, Genesis has re-defined his art as a challenge to the limits of biology. In 2000, he began a series of sex reassignment surgeries in order to more closely resemble his love, Lady Jaye (née Jacqueline Breyer), who remained his wife and artistic partner for nearly 15 years. The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye documents a truly new brand of Romantic consciousness, conveying beauty, dignity and devotion from a perspective never before seen on film.

Bio

Marie Losier. Born in France in 1972, is a filmmaker and curator working in New York City. She studied literature at the University of Nanterre and Fine Art 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 and are considered by Guy Maddin “the most effervescent and psychologically accurate portrait artist working in film today”. Her films are regularly shown at prestigious art and film festivals and museums, such as The Tate Modern, the Whitney Biennial, The Berlin Film Festival, The International Film Festival Rotterdam, Bafici and Tribeca Film Festival.
