Between his feature films Trash Humpers (2009) and Spring Breakers (2013), director Harmony Korine made a number of short works, including the 2010 project Act Da Fool, a movie produced for the womenswear brand Proenza Schouler.

Harking back to his directorial debut Gummo (1997), Act Da Fool finds Korine in a mode of small-town portraiture, focusing on reckless adolescence and searching for beauty and grace in the strange and mundane.

And if we may offer a little something to ponder: perhaps most noteworthy here, which is unique to Korine’s work as a filmmaker, is the question of how this piece functions with such seemingly marginalized characters decked out in high-end fashion clothing.
