WHERE HAVE YOU GONE, AVI KORINE?

Harmony Korine’s younger brother, Avi, is the subject of a page on wasted-off-butter.com. Pablo Maurer, who posted “Where Have You Gone, Avi Korine?,” was a high school friend of the Avi’s but did not, he says, know Harmony. Both Harmony and Avi went to Hillsboro High in Nashville, Tennessee.

HARMONY’S TREEHOUSE

Currently living in Nashville, Tennessee, Korine has taken up residency in a treehouse as he writes the screenplay for his next film, still purported to be titled “Nun’s The Word.” We were recently forwarded an interview with him that he gave to the daughter of a friend of his father’s. “Harmony’s Treehouse” first appeared in Girl Scout Troupe 16’s fortnightly newsletter on February 1 of this year. Later I will try and add a scan of the page as it includes two pictures of Korine posing with the troupe. In the meantime, you can read the interview here.
