set still "Marfa Girl" by Larry Clark, photo: Morgan Jenkins
The second edition of Kinomuzeum film festival will be inaugurated by the latest Larry Clark's movie "Marfa Girl". The American photographer and director presents an uncompromised image of teenagers living in legendary Marfa, a small town in Texas, close to the Mexican border.
Marfa exists at a particular cultural nexus with a constant clash between the art community (inspired to come to Marfa by the American sculptor, Donald Judd), the white community and the Mexican American community. On top of that theres a smothering Border Patrol presence despite the fact the Mexican border is 68 miles away. There is an 11 pm curfew for teenagers and they still have corporal punishment in the schools. They paddle kids in school from kindergarten through high school.
