Notorious avant-garde filmmaker Harmony Korine (Kids, Gummo, Mister Lonely, Trash Humpers) has created a new Super 8 film to help promote Proenza Schouler’s fall 2010 collection. Co-designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, both longtime fans of his work, approached Korine with a picture by Christopher Wool and “this idea of innocence and kids that were lost.” But the decision to shoot the short in Nashville, where he currently lives, was all him.
As Korine explained to T Magazine: “I used to hang out with this gang of black girls that were really hardcore delinquents, and I always loved them. Sometimes we would walk home from school and I would just watch them like set stuff on fire. Some of them would sleep in tree-houses and things. I used to always just think they were so terrific. In some way I just kinda tapped into that story.”
