Tonight, Larry Clark premieres “Marfa Girl” at the Rome Film Festival, his first full-length feature in seven years — his last was 2005’s “Wassup Rockers” — and a picture that is boldly embracing the changing landscape of movie distribution. And we’ve got a peek behind the curtain with an exclusive clip from the film along with several behind-the-scenes photos from the production.
Starring Adam Mediano, Mercedes Maxwell, Drake Burnette, Mary Farley, Jessie Tejada, Elizabeth Castro and more, the film follows the intersecting lives of the residents of the tiny town of Marfa, Texas with sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, art, violence and racism all coming into play. In this scene from the movie, we get to see both the spiritual and sexual themes that seem to run through the film.
“Marfa Girl” premieres tonight 10 p.m. in Sala Sinopoli, where it’s screening in competition. And you won’t have to wait very long to see it yourself. The film will be released exclusively on larryclark.com on Tuesday, November 20th at 6 p.m. EST. And no, it won’t be released in theatres or on DVD. Check out the clip below along with some behind-the-scenes pictures from the movie.
