Have you ever fantasized about having sex with an inanimate object? Does watching an elderly gentleman bang a pile of trash tickle your fancy? If you answered yes to either of these questions, (1) you should seek counseling, and (2) youll love demented filmmaker Harmony Korines Trash Humpers. The film follows a group of peeping toms who literally hump trash. Korines inspiration came from the old people who hung out in back alleys and under bridges near his childhood home in Nashville. Trash Humpers won the Grand Jury prize at the 2009 Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival even though its not a documentary and was selected for the 2010 Miami International Film Festival. Catch this Fridays midnight screening at the University of Miamis Bill Cosford Cinema.
