Mavi Phillips is a performance artist, filmmaker, and photographer who creates international productions that focus on a female perspective and sociopolitical topics. They are bold, unique, and powerful visual and sensual experiences that push the boundaries of society and reality to relay information in unexpected ways, to awaken and enrich viewers.
An autonomous filmmaker, Phillips is a writer, director, producer, cinematographer, and actor in her own international creative photo and video content, surrealist ethno-fictions, and narrative films under her company Orgone Productions. These works have sprawled across France, Italy, Hungary, Morocco, and the USA. She is in pre-production for her first feature film.
Phillips’s performance art practice focuses on an ongoing project to document her life, and life itself, through photography and writing, which she shows in large prints and publications.
She also acts as a film curator. Currently, she runs Orgone Cineclub, a screening and dinner series in New York.
No matter what medium, Phillips wants her work to inspire women to find strength within and incite in everyone the freedom to be themselves.
Filmmaking + ethnography, performance art + photography + surrealism

I have a very long list of female artist, filmmakers, theorist and philosophers, but my mom is of course number one, whose carefree and powerful spirit has always pushed me to be myself, no matter what comes my way.
