I've seen this documentary several times, and am so happy Sundance have added this! Time to watch it again. Exceptional documentary about a fascinating artist. I don't even like performance art, but she's is so captivating. MUST WATCH, regardless if you're an art lover or not.
I loved this intimate look at humanity and just how much can be expressed without words or movement. Very touching and engrossing.
4 sometimes 5_i don't love everything she does but i love a bunch of it_i couldn't do the artist is present for a day let alone the whole exhibit_i love the kids doing it_how powerful it was for the people who came and took part_ the girl who took off her dress and Klaus being the last one_sweet kiss & better w/o the table_so bravo_she's had an amazing career
