Indie documentary on Lydia Lunch’s life and career in the works

And there’s a video of the transgressive artist in conversation with Nicolas Jaar, produced as part of the project

Hailing from New York’s No Wave scene, radical artist Lydia Lunch is set to be the subject of film-maker Beth B‘s latest project.

The biographical documentary will detail the spoken word artist’s fearless approach to pushing boundaries in the underground music and arts scene of New York.

The Kickstarter page details the project: “We will follow her on the road back to her hometown of Rochester, on tour, backstage, and in interviews revealing the radical mind, the visceral music, and the edgy, philosophical, and humorous personality of Lunch.”

So far, Beth B has produced a video of Lunch discussing her career with former Crack cover star Nicolas Jaar. More films will be produced of the artist in discussion with pivotal figures in her life, such as Thurston Moore, Weasel Walter and more.

Watch the video below, and check out the Kickstarter page for more info.
