SCREENING

Trash Humpers

Ongoing

Dir. Harmony Korine. 2009, 78 mins. 35mm. Put forth as a VHS tape found in a ditch, Korine’s provocative Trash Humpers depicts masked actors simulating sex with garbage, mimicking the grungy amateur aesthetic of a found home movie with seemingly random cuts between vignettes in alleyways, backyards, and parking lots. An “ode to vandalism,” according to the filmmaker, Trash Humpers rewards the open-minded viewer with moments of astonishing and unexpected poignancy.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
