Screened in conjunction with Tate Modern’s Marlene Dumas: The Image as Burden, Miss Interpreted (Marlene Dumas) provides the viewer with a rare and unique insight into the artist’s working process and thoughts about art and life.

Collaging together new and archival home-video footage, the directors delicately sketch a portrait of Dumas as she moves from the installation of her ‘Magdalena’ paintings in Venice, to preparing for her first exhibition in Japan.

Featuring interviews with the artist, her family in South Africa and friends, the film attempts to extrapolate the intimate relations between Dumas’s work and her relationships, while leaving space for the viewer’s own interpretation.
