Easily one of the most important films I have seen as an artist. Those who belittle her or performances like this are incapable of going further than we allow ourselves. This is a brilliant woman doing a remarkable thing and the filmmakers treated the subject gracefully and poetically and, most importantly, with respect but not too much reverence.

A surprisingly emotional work. The film really helps to explain and contextualize performance art.
