Beautiful Losers is a feature documentary film celebrating the independent and D.I.Y. spirit that unified a loose-knit group of American artists who emerged from the underground youth subcultures of skateboarding, graffiti, punk rock and hip-hop. 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.
