About Totally F***ed Up
The first installment of Araki's Teenage Apocalypse film trilogy follows six queer teenagers struggling to get along with each other and with life in the face of varying obstacles. With an episodic plot, a collage of styles, and startling intimacy, the film is considered a seminal entry in the New Queer Cinema genre. 30th anniversary screening. [78 min; comedy, drama; English]
Featuring a virtual introduction by queer film scholar Dr. Arnau Roig-Mora (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain) and a post-film Q&A with filmmaker Matthew Riutta.
"Araki's self-described 'guerrilla' style of filmmaking has just the right edge here, yet is polished enough not to distract." — Steve Davis, The Austin Chronicle
"A soap for the slack generation that'll strike a chord way outside the confines of the New Queer Cinema." — TimeOut
