Trash Humpers
Thu, Jun 3 – Sat, Jun 5, 7:30 pm; Sun, Jun 6, 2 & 4 pm

The eccentric director of Gummo and writer of Kids’ raw new film is like something unearthed from the buried landscape of the American nightmare. Shot on degraded VHS tape and transferred to film, 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 inhabit their world of broken dreams as they crash against a torn and frayed America. (2009, 78 min, 35mm) “Riveting beyond all rationality” – Variety
