Synopsis

In 1990, the legendary radical gay performance artist and actor, John Fleck, became famous as one of the "NEA 4" in a US Supreme Court case involving freedom of speech and charges of obscenity. His moving and often hilarious performance work, with its bold exploration of sexuality, religion and morality, is the subject of filmmaker Kevin Duffy's documentary. The film intercuts raw archival video, current footage--from performances at the New Museum in New York, California State University, Long Beach and other venues--with compelling interviews in a kaleidoscopic portrayal of this often misrepresented and maligned artist.
