Premiered at the recent SXSW film fest, "Beautiful Losers" looks like it will be a joy to watch when it comes to town.
From the "Beautiful Losers" website:
For over a decade, outsider sub-cultures have influenced the mainstream. Now, a feature documentary finally explores that creative ethos driving youth culture and popular art today. First a traveling museum exhibition and book, "Beautiful Losers," is now an unique documentary celebrating the independent and D.I.Y. spirit that unified a loose-knit group of American artists who emerged from the underground worlds of skateboarding, graffiti, punk and hip hop. Directed by Aaron Rose and co-directed by Joshua Leonard, "Beautiful Losers" speaks to the collective memory of the 1990’s and sheds new light on those unbeknownst to mainstream America.
