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.

The film is followed by a Q&A with director Chris McKim, producer Fenton Bailey, and interviewees Gracie Mansion and Carlo McCormick, moderated by Jerry Portwood of Rolling Stone.

Reviews

“Critic’s Pick! [An] exemplary documentary on the artist… which is also a mini-chronicle of the East Village art scene of 1970s and ’80s New York.”


"Restless and bracing, Wojnarowicz gives a notorious life its due… leaves you breathless at the heights of personal expression he achieved."


“A stirring requiem of rage and resistance.”


“Deeply moving. One of the best movies of the year.”


“Evocative, first-rate… there’s considerable beauty and invention on display here, as often there was even in David Wojnarowicz's most enraged work."


"This is essential viewing for everyone… It is utterly impossible to look around and not hail David Wojnarowicz as a prophet who saw exactly what was happening."


"Wojnarowicz's defiant spirit is more necessary than ever… This is not a movie that placates the audience or pats you on the back for watching. It leaves you provoked, riled-up and ready to start an argument. As art should."


“An essential portrait of a late artist, told in his own profound words… an amalgamation of everything David Wojnarowicz leaves behind to inspire rebellion beyond the grave."


"Audiences looking to ignite a fire in the belly will be sparked by Wojnarowicz: F*ck You F*ggot F**ker. Like Wojnarowicz, this openly and proudly queer doc owns its voice and uses its platform to amplify outsiders."


“A rich and riveting work that captures Wojnarowicz's unapologetically queer spirit, and serves as a testimony to the enduring power of art.” 


"Like an irate guardian angel, the American artist David Wojnarowicz was there when we needed him politically."


"Few artists encapsulate the power of fury better than David Wojnarowicz."
