LSFF Harmony Korine Weekender – 16th & 17th Jan


Harmony Korine Gummo 1997Like Harmony Korine films? Live in London? Able to leave your house? Then you really should check out the Harmony Korine weekend programme at the London Short Film Festival.

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.
