Introduced by Rose Troche!

It’s hard to believe that Steve McLean’s landmark of queer cinema was finished only two years after the death of its subject, artist and provocateur David Wojnarowicz. A wild, sad, passionate kaleidoscopic ride through New York gay life, the film highlights the intensely personal nature of Wojnarowicz work, from his Jersey roots, to his years hustling on and off the West Village piers. For filmmaker Rose Troche, who worked on the film while she was finishing her own queer groundbreaker, go fish, the film “epitomized a moment when we began to believe in our voice, our power, our numbers…and represents the beginning of community and collectivity that still exists.”
