This documentary profiles James Broughton, a poet, filmmaker, and artist who served as a key player in San Francisco’s artistic renaissance after World War II. Through his art, Broughton pushed the boundaries of artistic expression and sexual liberation and was an early member of groups like the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and the Radical Faeries.
