Portrait of downtown NYC queer artist and activist, David Wojnarowicz, who died of AIDS in 1992, at the age of thirty-seven, “Wojnarowicz: F**k You F*ggot F**ker” directed by Chris McKim opens March 19 nationwide through Kino Marquee virtual cinemas.

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 was an Official Selection – 2020 Tribeca Film Festival, 2020 HOT DOCS and 2020 DOC NYC where it won Special jury recognition for Best Use of Archival Materials.
