NY Mag: Harmony Korine on How Fatherhood Influenced His New Movie About Having Sex With Garbage Cans
5 years ago
You introduced the New York Film Festival screening of Trash Humpers by warning the audience that if they had a tendency to walk out of films, that they should do so right now. Did you stay through the screening to see if anyone walked out?
I couldn’t stay through the screening, because we brought a little baby with us, and we had to get her back home. I want to give people a heads up because I don’t want to damage anyone. It’s also why I gave the film such a literal title. This is the only film I’ve made where I wanted to give people a bit of a warning.
But at the same time you’ve described it as a “found object,” and found objects almost never come with warnings. You just kind of happen upon them, unexpectedly.
