Synopsis

This fiery and urgent portrait of downtown New York City artist, writer, and activist David Wojnarowicz reveals his fiercely political, unapologetically queer approach to art. During the height of the AIDS epidemic, Wojnarowicz weaponized his work and waged war against the establishment’s indifference to the plague until his death from it at the age of 37. The film features his breathtaking body of work, rediscovered answering machine recordings, and intimate recollections from Fran Lebowitz, Gracie Mansion, Peter Hujar, and more.

This digital screening includes a moderated filmmaker conversation that will be on demand with the film. Participants to be announced soon!

Captioning and ASL will be provided for this virtual showing and conversation.
