Gummo (1997) culminates our Trash Cinema series with the legacy of trash, and one of American cinema’s most controversial contemporary directors, Harmony Korine.

A quasi-documentary/experimental-narrative, Gummo follows the exploits of an Ohio town recently devastated by a tornado. Surreal, beautiful, and in parts disgusting, Korine’s directorial debut shocked the art-house cinema scene. The film incorporates the feverish comedy of John Waters, with an underlying sobering pathos.
