35mm presentation - A film unearthed from the buried landscape of the American nightmare, Trash Humpers follows a small group of elderly "Peeping Toms" through the shadows and margins of an unfamiliar world. Crudely documented by the participants themselves, we follow the debased and shocking actions of a group of true sociopaths, the likes of which have never been seen before. Inhabiting a world of broken dreams and beyond the limits of morality, they crash against a torn and frayed America. Bordering on an ode to vandalism, it is a new type of horror—palpable and raw. Writer/director Harmony Korine (screenwriter of Kids, director of Gummo, Mister Lonely and Julien Donkey-Boy) returns with another provocation, this time inspired by a group of elderly people he witnessed as a child, as they hung out in back alleys and under bridges near his home, getting drunk, dancing and seemingly speaking in a strange invented language.

DIRECTOR: Harmony Korine
