In 1990, radical gay performance artist and actor, John Fleck, became infamous as one of the "NEA 4" in a US Supreme Court case involving freedom of speech. His moving and often hilarious performance work, with its bold exploration of sexuality, religion and morality, is the subject of filmmaker Kevin Duffy's documentary. The film intercuts raw archival video, current footage--from performances at the New Museum in New York and various California venues--with compelling interviews in a kaleidoscopic portrayal of this often misrepresented and maligned artist.
“This documentary by Kevin Duffy looks at the performance artist who was at the center of the culture wars of the early 1990s as one of the NEA Four....The doc follows Fleck during a pair of performances, flashing back to the early days of his career.” -- Carolina Miranda, Los Angeles Times
