In The Space In Between – Marina Abramovic and Brazil, Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic travels throughout Brazil in search of the spiritual forces of nature that are found deep-rooted in the culture of native Brazilians. On this revealing journey, Abramovic met, interacted and rejoiced with healers, shamans, sages, and sects, introducing her to their sacred rituals and creative process experiences.

The project is a mix between road movie, direct cinema, recorded performances, and ethnographic film. More than three thousand miles were covered, encompassing a wide range of geographic and cultural hotspots, exploring the Brazilian exuberant nature and documenting healing experiences as the ones performed by the medium João de Deus in Abadiânia, in the state of Goiás; the ceremonies and incorporations of Vale do Amanhecer, in Brasília; the ayahuasca rituals in Chapada Diamantina, and the powerful religious syncretism of Salvador, Bahia. The documentary follows Abramovic through a profound introspective journey of memories, pain, and past experiences.
