THE DIRTY ONES

Here is the first picture we have of Brent Stewart’s short film The Dirty Ones, which completed post-production earlier in the month. The film was described in a May 2008 issue of Nashville Scene as the story of two “Mennonite sisters confronting the modern world.” The Dirty Ones was produced by Harmony Korine with O’Salvation and stars Rachel Korine and Raven Dunn. It is expected the film will soon appear at festivals.

UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US

The May-June issue of Lodown features an interview with Audrey Ewell, co-director of the Black Metal documentary Until the Light Takes Us. Asked about how and why Harmony Korine came to appear in the film, Ewell answers:

Well, he’s been into black metal for many years; he also used Burzum in the Gummo soundtrack and has put up many Black Metal-related exhibitions in several galleries. Basically, we just went about it the same way that we did with everyone else in the movie: called him up and told him what we were doing, asked if he wanted to be involved. We’re just very honest in what we’re doing and what we want.

Information about the release of Until the Light Takes Us can be found of the film’s MySpace page here.

BOOK RETROSPECTIVE

In an entry in his blog on the RVCA website here (May 16), Aaron Rose writes of a recent trip to Nashville, saying, “Harmony and I are working on a book together and we spent two days straight scanning what seemed like everything he’s ever made. It was super emotional, because this was the first time he had seen most of this stuff in years. The book is going to be a career retrospective and it’s gonna be bonkers!”
