The LSFF and MUBI will be taking a look back at the controversial American filmmaker’s work at the ICA this weekend. They kick off on Saturday with a screening of Gummo, the cult 1997 feature about the destructive ways of residents of a small town called Xenia in Ohio. After the film they’re holding a ‘Gummosium’ (a play on symposium… you’re borderline with that one, guys) where a panel featuring Jason Wood (curator & film writer), Charlie Lyne (writer & filmmaker, Beyond Clueless, Fear Itself), Jennifer Reeder (filmmaker, Blood Below the Skin, A Million Miles Away) and Chiara Marañón (MUBI) will discuss Gummo and its impact.
Sunday sees the LSFF go for some Korine deep cuts. There’s a screening of Crack Up At The Race Riots, a film adaptation of Korine’s experimental novel, A Crack Up, by Belgian collective Leo Gabin, and a programme of Korine’s short films, featuring music videos, fashion films, and other curios directed by Harmony Korine over his 20 year career, to round off the weekend.
