LAST CHANCE!   Ticket sales end May 21.

NOTE:   THIS DOCUMENTARY ABOUT GAY ARTIST AND ACTIVIST DAVID WOJNAROWICZ INCLUDES ART WORK WHICH EXPLICITLY DEPICTS HOMOSEXUALITY AND MATERIAL SOME WILL FIND OFFENSIVE.

WOJNAROWICZ 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, the artist weaponized his work and waged war against the establishment’s indifference to the plague until his death in 1992 at the age of 37.

New York Times Critic’s Pick

“A stirring requiem of rage and resistance.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“Denouncing governmental indifference to the AIDS crisis, Wojnarowicz — giving artistic form and uninhibited voice to his rage — created one of the era’s exemplary bodies of work.   The director Chris McKim incisively intertwines a generous batch of audio interviews with Wojnarowicz’s friends, family, and associates; a rich set of archival footage to conjure his time and place; and vigorous effects to evoke his inner world.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker

“[An] exemplary documentary on the artist…also a mini-chronicle of the East Village art scene of 1970s and ’80s New York.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times
