Larry Clark, best known for collaborating with Harmony Korine on “Kids” and “Ken Park,” will return to the south-central U.S. for his latest film, “Marfa Girl,” which is being released by Breaking Glass Pictures.
Like Clark’s previous films, “Marfa Girl” constructs a gritty sexual portrait of the youth in a particular community — in this case, a Texas border town named Marfa.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis: “The new film from visionary director Larry Clark follows Adam, a directionless 16-year-old living in the working class U.S./Mexico border town of Marfa, Texas, and his sexual relationships with his teenage girlfriend, twenty something neighbor, aggressive local artist and high school teacher, while an unhinged, misogynistic border patrol agent watches over the neighborhood. What ensues is a web of sex, drugs, and violence as the Latino skater punks adjust to their gritty, aimless life in the dead end town.”
Check out the trailer for “Marfa Girl” below. The film hits theaters March 27.
