Nick Zedd Skype interview with Joey Huertas at The Kent Theatre
http://nickzedd.comNick Zedd is an American filmmaker and author from New York City. He coined the term Cinema of Transgression in 1985 to describe a loose-knit group of like-minded filmmakers and artists using shock value and black humor in their work. These filmmakers and artistic collaborators included Richard Kern, Tessa Hughes Freeland, Lung Leg, Annie Sprinkle and Lydia Lunch. Under numerous pen names, Zedd edited and wrote the Underground Film Bulletin (1984–90) which publicized the work of these filmmakers. The Cinema of Transgression was explored in Jack Sargeant's book Deathtripping (Creation Books). Mr Zedd's autobiography Totem of the Depraved was published by Henry Rollins' 2.13.61 publications in 1996. From 2004 to 2008 Nick Zedd produced and directed The Adventures of Electa Elf, a low-budget TV series out of NYC. Since moving to Mexico in 2011 Nick Zedd has edited three issues of Hatred of Capitalism magazine in which his Extremist Manifesto was published, sending shock waves through the art world. Recent films shot in Mexico City include Dr Shinto: Frustration, Cockfight, Paradise Lost, Demonic Sweaters: Love Always Love and a series of music videos for reggaeton singer Natalia Ibenez Lorio aka #laBAE.
