Spectacle, the first international museum exhibition to celebrate the art and history of the music video, showcased Sigismondi’s enormous influence, while her video for Marilyn Manson’s The Beautiful People earned a permanent spot in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
Sigismondi follows up her first feature,The Runaways (starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning,) with The Turning, a modern adaptation of Henry James’ Turn of the Screw, produced by Amblin and currently in post-production.

Sigismondi also directed the final episode of American Gods for Starz based on Neil Gaiman’s book.
Sigismondi presented Pneuma, a monumental art work commissioned by For Nuit Blanche Toronto, the annual all night celebration of contemporary art attended by thousands. Pneuma is a film-on-water installation in which Sigismondi performs on camera, looking to the human body as a vehicle for transformation.
