With the 1979 super-8 film, They Eat Scum, Nick Zedd planted the seeds for "the Cinema of Transgression". Flourishing in downtown New York, Zedd, along with other filmmakers and actors, revolutionized and stunned independent filmmaking with their "celluloid atrocities". Embraced by some, reviled by most, Zedd and his co-conspirators were met with media blackouts, violent resistance and harassment throughout America and Europe. An autobiography that is both shocking and poignant, Totem of the Depraved chronicles the life and thoughts of the founder of the most radical film movement of the 80's.
