Learn To Say F**k You to the World
“Learn To Say F**k You To The World” is based on the writings of Sol LeWitt and features an original song composed by Tim Armstrong from Rancid . In 1965, Sol LeWitt wrote fellow sculptor Eva Hesse a four-page letter of encouragement, urging her to stop doubting herself and to simply continue making her work. As the letter has since become a source of inspiration for artists all over the world, Aaron Rose (director of this eye-opening documentary about a group of Do-it-yourself creators) chose to tribute not only the words but also the works of the sculptor.
“Tim took Lewitt’s words and put them to music”, Rose says, “while we painstakingly researched particular works of art to animate”. The director’s intention was to create something that “would resonate today as strongly as LeWitt’s works did when they were created”. Mission accomplished, we think!
