The Golden Boat
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Courtesy Strand Releasing

In experimental Chilean filmmaker Raúl Ruiz’s 1990 punk rock picaresque, an assassin falls in love with a soap opera star and pursues her with the unlikely help of a rock critic and a philosopher. A metaphor for the genre-crossing art practices of the then-New York art scene, The Golden Boat includes appearances by Kathy Acker, Vito Acconci, Annie Sprinkle and The Wooster Group.

Ruiz’s first film produced in the United States, The Golden Boat is a satirical overview of the sensibilities and concerns of the downtown New York art scene during a significant time for the avant-garde community.

This event forms part of the I, I, I, I, I, I, I, Kathy Acker programme.
