Product Description

Activist documentarian {$Catherine Saalfield} made this profile of gay performance artist {$Ron Athey}, a former heroin addict with HIV. His parents planned for him to become a Pentecostal minister, but {$Athey} reacted by running away from home at age 15 to do a decade of drugs. In 1990, he danced at L.A.'s Club F*ck, site of performances by the late self-mutilation artist {$Bob Flanagan} (of {$Kirby Dick}'s 1997 {documentary} {#Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist}). {$Athey} wore a metal crown of thorns when he appeared in an AIDS-themed Saint Sebastian tableau titled "Martyrs and Saints," followed by a bloody show at the {~Walker Art Center} (Minneapolis) which led to 1995 cuts in the National Endowment for the Arts budget. This film features excerpts from {$Athey}'s stage shows, plus articulate interviews as {$Athey} and associates examine relevant issues -- death, drugs, disease, gay identity, emotional scars, religion, and the loss of friends to AIDS. With a blow-up from video to 35 mm, this film was shown at the {~1998 Rotterdam Film Festival}. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
