BEAUTIFUL LOSERS

BEAUTIFUL LOSERS celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation. In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture. Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks with themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth.

Beautiful Losers will be showing at the London Film Festival.
