About

4 videos: "The Passion of Joan of Arc" (2001) 8 min. Losier re-visions the oft told cinematic tale of Joan of Arc in this post-mortem/post-modern collaboration between the Great Dane Carl Dreyer and the filmmaker inserting herself into the 1928 film as God's greatest lover and France's most cherished martyr. A funny tragedy. "The Touch Retouched" (2001) 5 min. In 1971, Ingmar Bergman made his only American film, "The Touch, " starring ensemble regulars Max Von Sydow and Bibi Andersson, along with early '70's everyman Elliot Gould. In 2001, Marie Losier decided to recast herself in Gould's role, breathing new life into Bergman's most awkward, ill-conceived and dubious filmic endeavor. "Broken Blossom" (2001) 10 min. "This is a silent film. Just remember when you hear my voice, this is what it would sound like if you were hearing it. I am D. W. Griffith and I control the world." – D. W. Griffith Rediscovered footage of the screentests for D. W. Griffith's Broken Blossoms in which actress Marie Losier vies with Lilian Gish for the lead role. A violent silent film about deflowered Blossoms. "Chick-Chick" (2002), animation, 2 min. The transformation of a filmmaker into a chicken and her subsequent adventure in the world of a living painting. VHS rental: $50 sale: $75
