Whimsical, poetic, dreamlike and unconventional, her films explore the life and work of these artists through an endless variety of cinematic means. Losier’s works are presented regularly in prestigious museums and film festivals around the world (Tate Modern, Whitney Biennial, PS1, MOMA, Centre Georges Pompidou, The Wexner Museum, Tribeca, Flaherty Seminar, Berlin Film Festival, Rotterdam...
She lives/works in New York and has been the film curator at FIAF since 2000.
“ Marie Losier is the most effervescent and psychologically accurate portrait artist working in film today. Her films wriggle with the energy and sweetness of a broken barrel full o’ sugar worms!!!! No one makes pictures like Marie, Edith Sitwell’s inner Tinkerbell !!!! ”
