The Smell Of Us

Larry Clark Returns to the Big Screen With “The Smell Of Us”

The importance of Harmony Korine and Larry Clark’s Kids is undeniable. When the cult classic first premiered during the summer of 1995, the film gave the world a whole new perspective on what it was like to be a self-destructive teenager during the HIV era of ’90s in New York– jarring viewers with youthful abandon, excessive substance abuse and casual sex. The film also marked the first appearance on the big screen for many of the actors (and a skater!) that have since become household names, like Rosario Dawson, Chloe Sevigny, and Harold Hunter.

It is now 2014, and Larry Clark is ready to tackle the subject once again, but with a distinctly more French perspective. Though he has mainly focused on teenagers and youth subculture in his films, The Smell Of Us (his first foreign language film) focuses specifically on the skate subculture in the City of Lights. The script was written by the young talented poet S.C.R.I.B.E, and follows a group of party hardy young skaters between the ages of 14 and 20 around Paris.

For a behind-the-scenes look at the new film, check out the video above from Arte Creative’s web series “A Summer With The French Kids Of Larry Clark.
