Loïe Fuller: Obsessed with Light

Production of a ninety-minute documentary exploring the life and creative legacy of performing artist Loïe Fuller (1862–1928).

Loïe Fuller: Obsessed with Light will be the first feature-length documentary film about Loïe Fuller (1862-1928), an American from the Midwest who became one of the most famous performers in the world at the turn of the twentieth century. Beginning her career in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, Fuller moved to Paris during the fin de siècle and became known as a visionary artist, inventor, filmmaker and the first American modern dancer. Her innovations were pivotal in shaping the visual culture of the early twentieth century and although her name is largely unknown to the general public, she continues to have an influence in the contemporary art and design world today.
