DIRECTOR: LARRY CLARK AND ED LACHMAN
CAST: ADAM CHUBBUCK, JAMES RANSONE, AMANDA PLUMMER
Often censored, excoriated, and banned, but too-rarely screened, Clark’s collaboration with the virtuoso cinematographer Ed Lachman, based on Larry Clark’s diaries, surveys desire and despair among a group of thrill-starved Southern California teenagers and their even more fucked up parents and guardians, thrown into self-destructive trajectories following the death of one of the regulars at the local skate park. A purgatorial vision, seen in the shimmering light of paradise.
Screening with Blood of Havana + Gold on the Ceiling (The Black Keys)
