Just before the premier of her film Lydia Lunch - The War is Never Over, artist and filmmaker Beth B sat down with Lydia and Tim to discuss her career and her latest film.  

In the 1980s, Beth B was one of the most prominent creative voices living and working in downtown New York. During this period, she made large-scale installations and Super-8 films. Her Super 8 film work including G-man and Black Box made her a key player in the Cinema of Transgression film movement. Since the 1980s, she has released numerous documentaries and features for screen and television.

Her non-fiction feature, Exposed, about burlesque premiered in the Panorama section at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival.



Beth's documentary, Call Her Applebroog, chronicles the life and work of her mother—renowned visual artist Ida Applebroog. Call Her Applebroog premiered at MOMA’s Doc Fortnight in February 2016. 



Beth has also written and directed narrative features such as the great Salvation!: Have You Said Your Prayers Today?, and Two Small Bodies.

Lydia Lunch – The War is Never Over  premiered at the 2019 DOC NYC film festival on November 9 and is currently showing at the Rotterdam Film Festival In the Netherlands.
