Gregg Araki's Nowhere provides the perfect framework for a conversation about the rise of teen media in the 90s, valley girl linguistics, Baudrillard's simulacra and hyperreality, and the rich vitality of queer coming-of-age cinema.
Show Notes

Nowhere, the final installment in Gregg Araki's Teenage Apocalypse trilogy, provides the perfect framework for a conversation about the rise of teen media in the 90s, valley girl linguistics, Baudrillard's simulacra and hyperreality, and the rich vitality of queer coming-of-age cinema. Plus, Bonnie divulges some personal inspirations from Araki's filmmaking philosophy. 

P.S. while we don't endorse piracy, and Nowhere isn't currently available for rent in the US, you can do a search for it and the edited version we reference might pop up somewhere.
