Next weekend, Vivid will be hosting DEATHTRIPPING, a two part festival of transgressive trash film and performance. The event will feature a rare live appearance from iconic No Wave beauty Lydia Lunch (PICTURED) and exclusive screenings of ultra-shocking underground films from the likes of Nick Zedd and Richard Kern, some of which have been banned in the state of New York.
Lunch is set to headline a full night of loud Punk and No Wave music and Zedd and Kern’s movies aim to offer visitors a portal into the world of the Cinema of Transgression, a No Wave-inspired 80s underground film movement. The duo’s experimental movies take an extreme and satirical approach towards themes of pleasure, sex, horror and disgust.
