SIDETRACK FILMS presents a MANZANITA BROS. production. In association with PERCEPTION MEDIA and BLACKLAKE PRODUCTIONS.

Against the cliché idea that “growing up” usually mean to no longer be creative, the movie/documentary Beautiful Losers lead us to the world of a few like-minded people coming together to create something new and original…

Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion and independent music, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton
develop a cultural movement influenced by the D.I.Y (do it yourself ) attitude…
With no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world. They learned their crafts through practice, trial and error, and good old-fashioned innovation.
After the book released in 2004, the project “Beautiful Losers” in now available as movie/documentary. 

SIDETRACK FILMS apresenta MANZANITA BROS. production. em associação com PERCEPTION MEDIA e BLACKLAKE PRODUCTIONS.

Contra o cliché que “crescer” é sinónimo de deixar de ser criativo, o filme/documentário Beautiful Losers desvenda-nos o mundo de alguns dos criativos que se juntaram e deram um passo em frente e mostraram algo de novo e original… 

Influenciados pela cultura underground e por  sub-culturas como o skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion e musica, artistas como  Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, e Ed Templeton desenvolveram um movimento cultural com uma atitude “do it yourself “…
Com pouca ou nenhuma  formação em artes, e sem noção dos parametros habituais no mundo das artes “institucionalizadas”, criaram o seu próprio conceito através da prática de tentar e errar,  resoltando em algo forte e inovador.
Depois do sucesso do livro publicado em 2004, o projecto “Beautiful Losers” estende-se agora para um filme/documentário.
