The most memorable cultural movements in history have always developed organically. More often than not, they have been the simple result of a few like-minded people coming together to create something newÉ usually for no other purpose than a common love of doing it. In the early 1990's, a loose-knit group of American artists, many just out of their teens, unwittingly started just such a movement. Rooted in the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, surf, graffiti, punk and hip-hop, they created art that reflected the alternative 'do-it-yourself' lifestyles they led.Over the last decade these artists and the subcultures they sprang from have become not only popular, but have sparked the most influential cultural movement of our generation. BEAUTIFUL LOSERS is a theatrical documentary film that explores the creative ethos behind this growing movement through a collective portrait of ten of these artists.
