These are the movies that define generations. There is a veritable laundry list of the most essential transgressive, bizarre, and understatedly genius films that have impacted pop culture to this very day. They’ve permeated our ideas, infiltrated our vocabulary, and forever altered the way we create. Artists are invited to take from their favorite cult classics and make works of art in any medium to pay homage to the movies that changed our lives. From Pulp Fiction to A Clockwork Orange; from Bladerunner to The Evil Dead; from The Rocky Horror Picture Show to Hedwig and the Angry Inch; from Fight Club to The Big Lebowski – the list is endless, and their influence is timeless.
