He was eventually arrested and hung himself in jail before his 18th birthday. Wojnarowicz and Turner not only found the story humorous but also symbolic of the generation. The script took three nights to complete. The film was originally shot on a Canon 8mm camera, which Turner borrowed from Richard Kern. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür
