    • Synopsis
    • This is a love story, and a portrait of two lives that illustrate the transformative powers of both love and art. Marie Losier brings to us the most intimate details of Genesis P-Orridge’s extraordinary, uncanny world. He has been one of the most innovative and influential figures in music and fine art for the last 30 years and the founder of the legendary groups COUM Transmissions, Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV. Defying artistic boundaries, Genesis has re-defined his art as a challenge to the limits of biology. In 2000, he began a series of sex reassignment surgeries in order to more closely resemble his love, Lady Jaye. The film documents a truly new brand of Romantic consciousness, conveying beauty, dignity and devotion from a perspective never before seen on film.
