About the Author

Harmony Korine

Best known both as the writer of films "Kids" (1995) and "Ken Park" (2002) and as the director of films "Gummo" (1997) , "julien donkey-boy" (1999) , and "Mister Lonely" (2007) , Harmony Korine has been deemed as the "enfant terrible" of modern independent dramatic film. Raised in Nashville, Tennessee, the son of PBS cinematographer Sol Korine spent many of his days at revival theaters, drawing vast inspiration from a wide variety of envelop-pushing filmmakers. After reaching a break-through opportunity as a screenwriter for Larry Clark's first highly controversial film "Kids" in 1995, Korine quickly became viewed as one of America's most bizarre and inventive creative entities, especially with the release of his directorial debut "Gummo" in 1997 and the publication of his first novel, "A Crackup at the Race Riots," the following year. He has earned the recognition and respect of Werner Herzog, Gus Van Sant, Jean-Luc Godard, and others. Since his rise to fame (or infamy) , Korine has expanded his horizons in film, literature, art, music, and tap-dancing. He has directed several music videos, commercials, and David Blaine television specials; Korine has also hosted numerous exhibits of his art and photography. Currently, the man continues to release published screenplays and fanzines while caring for his wife Rachel and his son Lefty.
