Product description


A long-overdue, exhaustively comprehensive documentation of the Cinema of Transgression. Massively illustrated with rare, sometimes hair-raising photographs...The book will appeal to casual toe-dippers and the hard-core cognoscenti. -- Skin Two

Deathtripping is the first fully comprehensive account of the New York underground film movement, its prehistory, development and key players....There isn't any more anyone need know about Transgression after this. Deathtripping is the first and the last word on the subject. -- Headpress


A new, expanded and updated edition of Creation Cinema classic: Deathtripping. Growing out of the New York underground and the minds of a number of avant-garde, controversial film makers and artists, 'The Cinema of Transgression' (a confrontational style of film-making transgressing the boundaries of what's acceptable) is here subjected to an in-depth exploration by top underground film writer, Jack Sargeant. Since first published in 1995, Deathtripping has become the bible of this rarely documented, yet essential, film genre. Deathtripping: Presents a general history of underground film and seminal influences including Warhol, Kenneth Anger, Jack Smith, George and Mike Kuchar, John Waters, etc. Discusses origins and influences, situating the movement within the NY art/music scene.

Exclusive interviews with movement figureheads Richard Kern, Nick Zedd and Lydia Lunch Extensive illustrated film guide of key and related films, with synopses and critiques Publication coincides with first ever official release of New York Underground Transgressive film on video via BFI/ Connoisseur video Visually loaded with rare and often shocking photographs, Deathtripping is a unique document, the definitive guide to a style and philosophy of highly influential film-making, rooted in the New York punk rock/ art scene, which has been confined to the realms of the underground for far too long.
