My Degeneration

Director: Jon Moritsugu
Screenwriters: Jon Moritsugu

Institute History

  • 1990 Sundance Film Festival


“It’s about teen love; it’s about teen dreams; it’s about digging your grave with an electric guitar.” (J.M.) Complete with comic book cutouts, video images, homemade special effects, animation, meat products, and a postpunk rock score that puts its predecessors to shame, My Degeneration weaves a fairly tale about greed, scum and filth. While it may be easy to dismiss this loud, raw and even rude romp through pop culture, it would be foolish to disregard it as unintelligent.

— Alberto Garcia
