How to Act Bad is an intimate film portrait of singer, songwriter, artist, filmmaker, rock star and human being Adam Green. Filmmaker Dima Dubson followed his friend Green for two years and was given access to all aspects of the multi-faceted artist's extraordinary life, both public and private.
Framed by Green’s European tour, the film’s episodic narrative takes us back and forth in time over the course of those two eventful years resulting in a raw candid exploration of art, fame, fandom, drugs, love, romantic dysfunction, privacy and honesty.
