WOJNAROWICZ: F**K YOU F*GGOT F**KER is a fiery and urgent documentary portrait of downtown New York City artist, writer, photographer and activist David Wojnarowicz. As New York City became the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, Wojnarowicz weaponized his work and waged war against the establishment’s indifference to the plague — until his death from it in 1992 at the age of 37. Exclusive access to his breathtaking body of work — including paintings, journals and films — reveals how Wojnarowicz emptied his life into his art and activism. Rediscovered answering machine tape recordings and intimate recollections from Fran Lebowitz, Gracie Mansion, Peter Hujar, and other friends and family help present a stirring portrait of this fiercely political, unapologetically queer artist.
“Deeply moving. One of the best movies of the year.” —Richard Brody, The New Yorker “A rich and riveting work that captures Wojnarowicz's unapologetically queer spirit, and serves as a testimony to the enduring power of art.” —James Kleinmann, The Queer Review “A stirring requiem of rage and resistance…. The strength of McKim's film, from the outset, is the extent to which he channels Wojnarowicz's own perspective on these experiences. He effectively removes the distance between observer and subject.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter "Like an irate guardian angel, the American artist David Wojnarowicz was there when we needed him politically." —Holland Cotter, New York Times
