The Marina experiment

Kanopy (Firm)

Streaming video - 2014

The Marina experiment is the result of over 10,000 photographs, super 8 home footage and reel to reel audiotape interrogations that director Marina Lutz's father made of her during her upper class upbringing in 1960s and 1970s Manhattan. A both eerie and infinitely fascinating archive that she herself has now sorted out and reassembled. Her father's transgressive voyeurism is turned against himself, while a courageous self portrait simultaneously grows out of the almost incestuously in...timate 'home movies'. The result is a family - that can't be shaken off that easily, and which in an intelligent and absolutely unique way raises the question about the right to not be seen - a question that has become even more relevant in the present day. Director: Marina Lutz. Music by Australian Mick Harvey. Reviews: "The Marina Experiment raises many complex issues, not least the sensitivity and controversy of using children in art. It is a brilliant piece of filmmaking from somebody who had absolutely no knowledge of how to do it: 'I did it instinctively,' Lutz says." - Louise Carpenter, Observer Magazine, Guardian.co.uk. "The Marina Experiment" redefines the notion of 'home movie': Marina Lutz has combed through the family archives and created a brave and provocative short about parental voyeurism, disturbing echoes of "Capturing the Friedmans" and Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom." - John Ginn, DaVinci Film Festival.
