Fearlessly raw, angry, and unrestrained, the films of underground auteur Gregg Araki give voice to the angst and alienation of queer youth everywhere. Emerging as one of the edgiest and most vital voices of 1990s New Queer Cinema movement with radical provocations like THE LIVING END and TOTALLY F***ED UP, Araki channeled the disillusionment and despair of the AIDS era into transgressive, stylistically explosive howls of rage in the face of a homophobic society. With his haunting drama MYSTERIOUS SKIN, Araki won widespread acclaim and cemented his status as one of independent cinema’s most uncompromising chroniclers of the outsider experience.
