Gramps Humps Trash

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) you’ll love demented filmmaker Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers. The film follows a group of peeping toms who literally hump trash. Korine’s 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 it’s not a documentary — and was selected for the 2010 Miami International Film Festival. Catch this Friday’s midnight screening at the University of Miami’s Bill Cosford Cinema.
Fri., Sept. 24, 11:59 a.m., 2010
