What New York was like in 70s and 80s you will never see again, but maybe that was the reason why so many underground artists from that period were recording their activity on film. But then I might say what New York was back then Berlin is now.

Nick ZeddKembra PfahlerCasandra StarkBeth BTommy Turner,Richard Kern and Lydia Lunch were creating low budget films using cheap 8mm cameras.  In 1985 Nick Zedd has coined a term

Cinema of Transgression

to describe a loose-knit group of like-minded filmmakers and artists using shock value and black humor in their work.

“We openly renounce and reject the entrenched academic snobbery which erected a monument 
to laziness known as Structuralism and proceeded to lock out those filmmakers who possesed the vision to see through this charade.”

Tantalus, oil painting by Nick Zedd.

Kenneth Anger & Nick Zedd, 2012


The themes of this movie are love, sexual freedom, loyalty, human insecurity and the strategies people employ to survive and maintain relationships within the unnatural constraints imposed upon them by the economic pressures of capitalism, landlordism and a shrinking work force.
