Beautiful Losers

Check out the Beautiful Losers Website, and feast your pretty eyes on the trailer for their movie...I reckon we need to be especially nice to Mel and see if we can get a screening at college.

Synopsis pinched from the site:

"BEAUTIFUL LOSERS celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture. Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth. "

Also Beautiful Losers are interested in seeing what other people are up to, so visit the website and send something in, start getting your stuff out there!
