Anyone who knew Kathy Acker...will not recognise this Kathy Acker!

It would be interesting to hear what Kathy's thoughts on this film...perhaps, misrepresentation?!?

We will never know. RIP Kathy.

The(ir) Blurb...

A portrait of the punk writer Kathy Acker is the starting point for a conversation with the photographer intersex Del LaGrace Volcano around gender identity and transformation. With a hybrid form of documentary and fiction, Pirate Boys presents a journey into flesh, words, and desire. A new language emerges from a trans cinematic experience.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
