Emerging Visions

The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye

Director: Marie Losier

North American Premiere |  Documentary Feature |  USA |  2011 |  Digibeta |  72 MIN


The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye documents the modern love story between Genesis P-Orridge -- founder of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV and one of the most influential figures in underground music since the 1970s – and Lady Jaye, his closest artistic collaborator for 15 years. Director Marie Losier trains her sensitive, tactile vision on "Creating Their Pandrogyne", the couple's attempt to dissolve the physical boundaries between them and become the same person. Mixing interviews, home movies, and performance footage, Losier brings us nearer to the artists than ever in a playful and moving revelation of a new romantic consciousness.
