indieWIRE has an exclusive clip from Harmony Korine's ("Gummo," "Mister Lonely") latest, "Trash Humpers," which, crazily enough, delivers pretty literally on the film's title. Shot in an ultra lo-fi aesthetic in Korine's hometown of Nashville, the film is set to premiere tomorrow, September 12, at the Toronto International Film Festival.

indieWIRE has an exclusive clip from Harmony Korine's ("Gummo," "Mister Lonely") latest, "Trash Humpers," which, crazily enough, delivers pretty literally on the film's title. Shot in an ultra lo-fi aesthetic in Korine's hometown of Nashville, the film is set to premiere tomorrow, September 12, at the Toronto International Film Festival.

According to TIFF: "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."

"I remember when I was a child there was a small group of elderly people who would hang out in the back alleys and under bridges by my house," said Korine in a director's statement. "They always seemed to be getting drunk and dancing. One night I looked out my bedroom window and saw a group of them humping trash cans and laughing. It sounded like they were speaking a strange invented language. This is a movie about them."

"Trash Humpers" will also screen at the New York Film Festival on October 1.
