Abstract:

Kathy Acker (née Karen Lehmann, 1947-1997) was an American experimental novelist, punk poet, playwright, essayist, postmodernist, and sex-positive feminist writer. Strongly influenced by the Black Mountain School, William S. Burroughs, David Antin, French critical theory, philosophy, and pornography, her writing utilized plagiarism, cut-up techniques, pornography, autobiography, persona, and personal essay to confound expectations of what fiction should be. To document Ackers life, the film has family pictures, found footage of readings and performances spanning three decades, filmed interviews, animated excerpts from her work, documentary footage of New York in the 70s and 80s punk scene, interviews with young readers and people who knew her as part of the burgeoning New York literary underground. Known in the literary world for creating a new style of feminist prose and for transgressive fiction, she was also a punk who became a feminist icon for her portrayals of subcultures, strong-willed women, violence, explicit sex, and the underlying politics of subordination that affect us all.
