„A like Araki” – the latest book by Natalia Gruenpeter published by SILESIA FILM Institute

Like from a comic book, drawn with a thick line, in neon colours like that of school highlighters and shamelessly youthful, as befits a rebel. Such is the cinema of Gregg Araki, who from the end of the eighties has been telling us with the same verve about growing up and his rebellious heroes, whom he truly adores. Considered one of the most important creators of the New Queer Cinema, Araki has shown that about the story of a rebellion, alienation and identity can be told using the already known yet transformed language like the slang of the youth.
