Spit Earth: Who Is Jordan Wolfson? is a feature documentary film about this controversial and divisive artist who in the last five years has solidified his stature with unnerving and provocative new works that elicit extreme reactions from both critical naysayers and vocal proponents alike. Wolfson is not content to play by the rules of a conservative self-policing art market that favors the status quo, instead preferring to make us squirm as he engages a host of lightning-rod issues facing our society today; homophobia, misogyny, racism, white nationalism, antisemitism and violence to name but a few. Wolfson is an art maker on the world stage whose immersive works take on today’s endemic virtue signaling and politically correct narratives, veritably throwing it all back into our faces. The film explores Wolfson’s most notable recent works while taking viewers on a behind-the-scenes journey to both coasts as the artist prepares his most ambitious animatronic sculpture to date. It is an intimate view of a brilliant artist whose fractured sense of self results in a constant struggle with identity, sexuality, fear and anxiety. The film includes playwright Jeremy O. Harris (Slave Play, Daddy), artist Jeff Koons and feminist writer and novelist Erica Jong (Fear of Flying), among others.
