Q&A with Larry Clark following the 6pm screening on Saturday, August 25. [SOLD OUT]

Leo Fitzpatrick’s smooth-talking “Virgin surgeon” Telly cuts a potentially deadly swathe through unsuspecting adolescent girls in this snapshot of dirty, dangerous New York that practically reeks of adolescent b.o. and rampaging hormones. Clark’s debut brought semi-documentary scrutiny to bear on the blunt-rolling and mating rituals of the city’s downtown skaters as recorded by punk prodigy screenwriter Harmony Korine, while assembling one of the great ensemble casts of its day, with screen debuts by Chloë Sevigny, Rosario Dawson, Justin Pierce (RIP), Zoo York skater Harold Hunter (RIP), and Jon Abrahams.

Screening as a part of our Larry Clark series.
