Wojnarowicz: F--k you, F-ggot F--ker (2020)

Documentary 1h 48m

Wojnarowicz is an incendiary portrait of New York City artist, writer, photographer, and activist David Wojnarowicz. As NYC became the epicentre of the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s, Wojnarowicz weaponised his installations and performance art to wage war against the establishment’s indifference to the plague until his death from it in 1992 at the age of 37. Delving into his prolific body of work - including paintings, journals, and films - director Chris McKim reveals how Wojnarowicz devoted his life to his art and activism. Rediscovered answering machine tape recordings and intimate recollections from Fran Lebowitz, Gracie Mansion, Peter Hujar, among others, offer a vivid impression of this fiercely political, unapologetically queer artist.
