Come and see Director; Harry Kim’s film, “Dirty Hands” which documents eight years of the life of David Choe. The film premiere’s in L.A and Sunset 5 starting today and runs until May 6th 2010.
“An outlaw artist whose violent, phantasmagoric, and unapologetically sexual work is both highly controversial and deeply challenging, David Choe rose from notorious street artist and porn magazine illustrator to prolific painter, muralist, and graphic artist – but his evolution from underground tagger to art-world darling was just about the farthest thing from a smooth ride imaginable. Los Angeles-based artist Choe lives his life as unrestrained as humanly possible, and while that’s a truly unique way to find inspiration it can make life somewhat difficult at times: In addition to serving multiple jail sentences and battling addiction, Choe has also wrestled pygmies in the heart of the Congo and gone hunting for dinosaurs.”
The World Premiere of Harry Kim’s long awaited documentary film Dirty Hands opens for 1 week only at Sunset 5. Head to the cinema tonight and catch up with Harry Kim (Film Maker/Director) and David Choe (subject of the film) between 9:30pm – 10:00pm. Posters and T-shirts will be available for purchase/signing.
