Harmony Korine's' photographic documentary The Trash Humpers, recording the process of his research for his newest movie of the same name. This follows his shocking 1995 movie Kids, about drug-addled adolescents wallowing in ennui and sex. Arbiters of culture and morality wrung their hands after the release of Kids, but two first-time actors in the film, Chloe Sevigny and Rosario Dawson, found longtime fame in the ensuing years. Korine himself went on to direct several audaciously polarizing feature films. His latest directorial project "The Trash Humpers," for which this book presents a photographic record, was released on lo-fi VHS and edited in part while blindfolded--or so Korine attests. The 78-minute movie follows a gang of miscreants who roam the streets of Nashville, molesting garbage bins and causing random mayhem. It's an "ode to vandalism and the creativity of the destructive force," Korine has said. "Sometimes there's a real beauty to blowing things up, to smashing and burning. It could be almost as enlightening as the building of an object."
