Gash and Others by Tracey MacCullion

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Co-presented by Center for the Arts as part of Teensploitation!

Curated by Joel Shepard

Tonight marks the first Bay Area appearance of Tracey MacCullion, whose intensely imagined portraits of teenage life have taken New York City and Europe by storm during the past two years. “A relentless, highly-charged punk trance film, Gash depicts the feral, traumatized psychic landscape of a young girl caught between her grotesquely abusive family and the out-of-control, sexually aggressive crowd she hangs out with on the streets of Boston. This raw plunge into regressive abjection has the shattering, uncanny power of a living nightmare and the ferocity of a fight to the death and puts filmmaker MacCullion on the map as one of the most exciting young talents around.” (Ocularis) This program also features related shorts by William Jones, Xan Price, and Nick Zedd.
