DIRECTOR: HARMONY KORINE

Shot on distressed, glitchy VHS in order to lend its images a frightful found-footage dumpster dive quality, then printed to 35mm, Trash Humpers follows another of Korine’s eccentric ensembles, this time a collective of Nashville residents who look like geriatrics and behave like nursery schoolers, roving through the city to bump-and-grind on inanimate objects and otherwise create trouble in a string of blackout skit-style vignettes, each one hinged on almost ceremonial repetition. “A Dadaist delight... a direct descendant of Jack Smith’s Flaming Creatures.”—Amy Taubin, Film Comment

Screening with Umshimi Wan.
