Synopsis

A series of low-quality video images downloaded off the internet and edited together without any apparent leitmotiv: adolescents posing and skateboarding, laughing and joking with each other, venting today’s exhibitionistic urge, announcing suicides that perhaps will never be committed. All this uploaded onto the top social networks like intimate moments to share with the world. Connecting each scene to the next, excerpts from the same-titled novel by Harmony Korine, like a sort of plot outline for a performance of the performance that has gotten out of hand. [mp]
