The Cinema of Transgression was a movement associated with the cinematic no-wave, which involved a loose knit group of artists and filmmakers in New York’s mid-1980s downtown scene. The term, coined by Nick Zedd, refers to the overlapping aesthetics of artists like himself, Richard Kern, and Lydia Lunch, whose films dealt primarily with aberrant sexuality and/or extreme violence in a technically lo-fi, often humorous manner.
