The Alex Ballinger book New Cinematographers, released by Laurence King Publishing in 2004, features a detailed account of the production of Gummo by cinematographer Jean-Yves Escoffier (1950 – 2003). The article can be found on the site here (unique images from the book can be seen here and here). The article “And The Ass Saw The Angel,” from the July 2000 issue of The Face, is also new to the site. It can now be found here.
Brandon Langley on the forum recently managed to arrange an interview with Harmony Korine. The interview, which will be conducted at the same time as a second unrelated interview, is to take place later this month, with a recent email from Korine’s assistant giving further details of what is to take place:
Harmony has decided to do the interview in an area that is considered part of “the projects” where a very good friend of his was murdered several years ago. I will give you precise directions on the day of the interview, and you should wear something bulletproof or bring a weapon.
This is NOT a hoax of any kind. It is an homage to a friend who had his head cut off, and it is on the actual spot where the body was found. Your cameras/equipment must be set up before he arrives, and you must be prepared for what may happen. I apologize if my tone is terse, but it is important for me to convey to you that this is not a joke. You may want to talk to each other beforehand.
Langley is currently seeking questions from forum members for the interview. If you have any questions you’d like asked of Korine you can submit them on the forum here.
An interview with Harmony Korine, from the current issue of the magazine Death + Taxes, is available here. From the July issue of Little White Lies comes another interview here. The music, film and design blog Cosign is also responsible for an interview now on the site here, which is a record of audience questions following a recent screening of Mister Lonely. Thanks to axepuzzles and Chris Lusher.
A further three images of Korine have been added to the site: here, here and here.
