From his influential debut film Gummo to his provocative recent hit Spring Breakers, Harmony Korine has made a name for himself as a filmmaker with few limits. One of cinema’s true originals, he’s being spotlighted at this month’s London Short Film Festival with a special weekend celebration of his work.
Philip Ilson, the founder of LSFF, describes Gummo as one of the best films ever made, saying: “when an artist is loved or loathed in equal measure, they must be doing something right.”
You can judge for yourself by heading along to the event, which has been curated in partnership with MUBI. There’ll be a range of shorts and features by and related to Korine, which will no doubt shock, delight, disturb and make you think.
We have two passes for the Harmony Korine Weekender, which will get you into four events at the ICA on 16-17 January. On Saturday, it’s a screening of Gummo (which is otherwise sold out) followed by the Gummosium, which sees an expert panel dissect the film. Then on Sunday you can see Korine’s shorts as well as the film A Crack Up At The Race Riots, based on Korine’s novel.
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
