Who's Afraid of Kathy Acker?
2007. Austria/Germany. Written and directed by Barbara Caspar. Produced by Caspar, Annette Piscane, Markus Fischer, Andrew Standen-Raz. With Carolee Schneeman, Barney Rossett, Alan Sondheim, Ira Silverberg. This multilayered feature-length documentary focuses on Kathy Acker, the highly influential author, performance artist, and sexual-liberation icon. Acker was celebrated for her raw and original writings and monologues about sex, gender, and passion, and for the vivid example she set by her own life. Acker was born in Manhattan in 1947, and she died of cancer in Tijuana in late 1997. Approx. 90 min.
