Updates + Press

Marie Hinson is an artist and cinematographer based in New York. She specializes in  feature documentaries and commercials and creates site-specific performances and experimental films. 

As an artist, Marie’s performances, installations, and experimental films have shown in festivals and several group shows. In 2019, she debuted new site-specific performance work, “Stop on the object / move on the image” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. She is currently working on a writing, performance, and film project about growing up in rural Appalachia as a trans and queer person. 

Recently, Marie was a cinematographer and associate producer on Queer Genius which features visionary queer artists Eileen Myles, Barbara Hammer, Black Quantum Futurism and Jibz Cameron. She was also a cinematographer on Alysa Nahmias’ forthcoming documentary about artist Jesse Krimes. She also shot a two year long webseries for Comcast about a massive commissioned art project for their new headquarters which included a Steven Speilberg directed immersive cinematic installation. 

Marie’s directorial debut, Frank Bey: You’re Going to Miss Me, is currently in post-production and supported by fellowships through Chicken and Egg Pictures and the IFP Documentary Lab.

Practice

Marie uses cross-disciplinary practices of film, documentary, conceptual art, performance, and experimental sound to create site transformative works that tie together the embodied and metaphysical in landscapes, galleries, collectives and self.

STOP ON THE OBJECT / MOVE ON THE IMAGE
Site-transformative collective performance project // 2019
On-going collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art and an artist collective of dancers, choreographers, poets and visual artists including Meg Foley, Laura Neuman, Vitche-Boul Ra, and Sekai’afua Zankel.


THIS IS A TRANSMISSION
Audio installation, experimental documentary // 2019
On-going audio installation project using long form recorded conversations with trans and non-binary artists about the metaphysical and spiritual dimensions of our lived experience.


FRANK BEY: YOU’RE GOING TO MISS ME
90 min // feature documentary // 2019
A nuanced, participatory portrait of Frank Bey, a Georgia-born soul singer who at 72-years-old recorded his dream album with legendary producer Tom Hambridge in Nashville.


THE ROAD THROUGH SOUTH PASS 
30 min // experimental // 2018
A dreamy reimagining of the mountain landscapes of western Wyoming. The Road Through South Pass dwells on the lines both visible and invisible that we write into our land, and through the land into our bodies.


JEFFERSON, JULY FOURTH
15 min // experimental documentary // 2017
A quiet portrait of the ritual space between land and community deep in the mountains of southern Appalachia.


LAUREL RUN ROAD
27 min // experimental narrative // 2015 
Fall gives way to winter as Sean and his daughter Caitlin stop off in a rural college town on their way back from an off-season beach vacation. They wander through the ridges and valleys of the Appalachian landscape, finding quiet, tenuous moments together as their time to reconnect winds to a close.


IF THESE WERE SILENT 
9 min // experimental short // 2013
An optically printed landscape of a mountain in northeast Pennsylvania. Shifting horizons, kaleidoscopic trees, and passing hikers meet shifting frame lines, changing frame rates, and optical effects in a phenomenological exploration of the interanimation of thought and landscape.
