Marie Hinson

Originally from the mountains of eastern Appalachia, Marie moved to Philadelphia for an MFA in film production. As a member of Vox Populi, she participates in the running and programming of the Blackbox experimental performance space. Her current experimental dance film, The Road Through South Pass, was shot in residency at Teton Artlab in Wyoming in collaboration with choreographer Babs Case and dancers Luke Zender and Michaela Ellingson of Contemporary Dance Wyoming.

In her art practice, Marie uses experimental combinations of documentary, dance, performance, poetry, and installation to reimagine the sites and meanings of interaction between land, body, community, image and text. Her work has shown around the world, including the Montreal Underground Film Festival, the London and Porto Underground Film Festival, Icebox Project Space, Vox Populi, and Unexposed Microcinema.

Marie is also a director of photography and an associate producer on Catherine Pancake’s forthcoming documentary Queer Genius featuring visionary queer artists Eileen MylesBarbara HammerBlack Quantum Futurism and Jibz Cameron. Her directorial debut documentary, When You Ask Me How I Feel, is in post production. The film is a nuanced, participatory portrait of Frank Bey, a Georgia-born soul singer who at 72-years-old recorded his dream albcomum in Nashville.
