RATKING – Piece of Shit (A Film by Ari Marcopoulos)

Acclaimed photographer/filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos recently finished up "Piece of Shit," a short film on the youthful hardcore, post-hip-hop crew RATKING. Entirely captured on Super 16mm, "Piece of Shit" showcases the group performing a live version of their record taken from their latest WIKI93 EP. You'll find the end results being a documentary-style visual capturing the trio's Brooklyn practice space that showcases Marcopoulos' trademark subtle, black and white aesthetic. Marcopoulos also created a limited edition 5" x 7" zine comprised of 38 original film stills, photographs and screen grabs. "Piece of Shit" the zine is limited to 150 copies and will be available from select retailers and upcoming RATKING live shows. Check out some of those dates below.
