Add to Calendar 08-03-2013 22-03-2013 15 Harmony Korine Retrospective Director, screenwriter, and artist Harmony Korine has developed an aesthetic as unique and bracing as any that launched in the heyday of 1990s American independent film. Korine made his name as the screenwriter of the nihilistic-teen movie Kids, but came into his own as a director with the 1997 feature debut, Gummo. From March 8 through 22, 2013, Museum of the Moving Image will present a retrospective of all of Korine's five feature films to date, including his latest, Spring Breakers—a triumph at both the Toronto and Venice film festivals. Harmony Korine will appear in person with the Museum's preview screening of Spring Breakers on Tuesday, March 12, at 7pm, participating in a conversation moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz after the film. Korine's latest is a high-concept pulp-fest featuring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine as co-eds who perform a catalogue of illegal and incendiary activities in order to get out of their boring small town for spring break. Also starring James Franco, the film opens theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on March 15 (nationwide on March 22), released by A24 Films. In addition to Spring Breakers (2013) and Gummo (1997), the Museum retrospective includes Mister Lonely (2007), Korine's largest production to date and which features art cinema luminaries Diego Luna, Werner Herzog, Denis Lavant, and Samantha Morton cast as celebrity impersonators; the critically acclaimed Julien Donkey-boy (1999); and the cult hit Trash Humpers (2009), which film critic J. Hoberman called a "gloriously desultory slap in the face of public taste." Together, these films reveal the eccentricities as well as the depth of one of the most compellingly divisive directors working today. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=131338 Museum of the Moving Image true DD/MM/YYYY

Description: Director, screenwriter, and artist Harmony Korine has developed an aesthetic as unique and bracing as any that launched in the heyday of 1990s American independent film. Korine made his name as the screenwriter of the nihilistic-teen movie Kids, but came into his own as a director with the 1997 feature debut, Gummo. From March 8 through 22, 2013, Museum of the Moving Image will present a retrospective of all of Korine's five feature films to date, including his latest, Spring Breakers—a triumph at both the Toronto and Venice film festivals.

Harmony Korine will appear in person with the Museum's preview screening of Spring Breakers on Tuesday, March 12, at 7pm, participating in a conversation moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz after the film.
