The creator of some of the most popular, enduring images of late
20th-century art, Keith Haring was also an iconic figure of the downtown New
York scene in the '80s. Christina Clausen's documentary offers an
affectionate, deeply personal glimpse into Haring's life, from his early
years growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to his heyday as
a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna,
Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Andy Warhol. Featuring Fred Brathwaite, A.K.A. Fab
5 Freddy, Jeffrey Deitch, Julia Gruen, Kim Hastreiter, Bill T. Jones, David
LaChapelle, Hans Mayer, Samantha McEwen, Carlo McCormick, Roger Nellens,
Yoko Ono, Kermit Oswald, Kenny Sharf, Bruno Schmidt, Tony Shafrazi, Drew
Straub, Junior Vasquez, Gil Vasquez, and with Joan, Allen, Kay, Karen, and
Kristen Haring.

OBSCENE is the definitive film biography of Barney Rosset, the influential
publisher of Grove Press and the Evergreen Review. He acquired the then
fledgling Grove Press in 1951 and soon embarked on a tumultuous career of
publishing and political engagement that continues to inspire today's
defenders of free expression. Not only was he the first American publisher
of acclaimed authors Samuel Beckett, Kenzaburo Oe, Tom Stoppard, Che
Guevara, and Malcolm X, but he also battled the government in the highest
courts to overrule the obscenity ban on groundbreaking works of fiction such
as Lady Chatterley's Lover, Tropic of Cancer and Naked Lunch. But the same
unyielding and reckless energy Rosset used to publish and distribute
controversial works such as Allen Ginsberg's Howl, the Swedish film I AM
CURIOUS (YELLOW), and the provocative Evergreen Review, also brought him
perilously close to destruction. Featuring music by Bob Dylan, The Doors,
Warren Zevon, and Patti Smith, and never-before-seen footage.
