Movie Info

Documentary filmmaker Michael W. Dean talks to a generation of artists of various types who have gained critical -- and in several cases financial -- success by staying true to their own visions and refusing to be co-opted by the mass media. In long, detailed interviews with figures including 1980s underground shock filmmaker Richard Kern, author and spoken-word performer Beth Lisick and post-punk music icons Lydia Lunch and Ian Mackaye, Dean explores the necessity of self-reliance.

Audience Reviews for D.I.Y. or Die: How to Survive as an Independent Artist

  • Jan 03, 2011
    This is filled with artists who talk about how singular and unique they are but they all dress the same, live the same, and say the same thing through the whole flick. While it touted as having a wide variety of folks that made up the interviews they weren't. The quality of the filming and audio were all over the place and a lot of the time became distracting.
