Beautiful Losers, the new film about contemporary art and urban creative culture‚Äîprimarily springing from an East- (NYC) and West-coast (San Francisco/LA) do-it-yourself ethos‚Äîthat follows the book and exhibition by the same name, will hit theaters in Spring 2008. The film showcases a roster of artists whose work, inspired by the subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hiphop, and graffiti, brought them together from the early 1990’s on. It also features exclusive footage of Margaret Kilgallen and Barry McGee shot by Art21. Other artists profiled in the documentary include Ed Templeton, Jo Jackson, Chris Johanson, Geoff McFetridge, Mike Mills, Steve Powers, Harmony Korine, Shepherd Fairey, and more.
