EAI presented a screening and panel discussion about the films of David Wojnarowicz. Centering around the rarely screened Beautiful People (1987) and a working soundtrack for A Fire in My Belly (1986-87), the event focused on an under-recognized aspect of Wojnarowicz's films and art: his plans and preparations for soundtracks. Rebecca Cleman, EAI's Director of Distribution, moderated a discussion with Wojnarowicz's former bandmate Doug Bressler, who was collaborating on a Fire in My Belly soundtrack with the artist; Cynthia Carr, author of Fire in the Belly: The Life and Times of David Wojnarowicz; Brent Phillips, Media Specialist & Processing Archivist of Fales Library, and filmmaker Tommy Turner. A screening of Beautiful People, a collaboration with Jesse Hultberg that was originally presented with live accompaniment at La MaMa, and an excerpt of A Fire in My Belly with sound component preceded the discussion.
