“Larry Clark’s “Kids” follows a group of teenage boys and girls through one day and night during which they travel Manhattan on skateboards and subway trains, have sex, drink, use drugs, talk, party, and crash in a familiar stupor, before starting all over again the next day. The movie sees this culture in such flat, unblinking detail that it feels like a documentary; it knows what it’s talking about. The movie’s dialogue, which sounds authentic, was written by a 19-year-old Harmony Korine, who lived in the world of skateboarders and suggested the casting of some of his friends to Clark.”

“The film is intended as a wake-up call, and for some kids, it may be a lifesaver.”

“It is so raw, bleak and unfiltered that such a policy is appropriate, and yet there will be kids who should see this movie, and my hunch is, somehow they’ll find it.” -Rogert Ebert , July 28, 1985

Powerful and passionate, colorful and compelling, Larry Clark’s KIDS is 24 frenetic hours in the lives of a group of contemporary teenagers who, like all teenagers, believe they are invincible. With breathtaking images from one of the world’s most renowned photographers, KDIS is a deeply affective, no-holds-barred landscape of words and image, depicting with raw honesty the experiences, attitudes and uncertainties of innocence lost. KIDS gets under the skin and lingers long after it is viewed. The kids at the core of the story are just that: teenagers living in the urban melee of modern-day America. But while these kids dwell in the big city, their story could quite possibly happen anywhere.
