Act da FoolOF-2011 

When Korine was approached to cooperate with Proenza Schouler, he didn’t hesitate for a second. He found the worst delinquents in Nashville and filmed them in a typical, poetic style. You could call it a paradox, showing trashy people in such expensive clothes. Korine regards it as a religious film.

Programmer Note by Inge de Leeuw:

Proenza Schouler is an American fashion label founded in 2002 by designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. They met at the prestigious Parson's School of Design in New York. For more information on the label, please visit: www.proenzaschouler.com. For the autumn 2010 collection, Proenza Schouler approached American independent filmmaker Harmony Korine, who - alongside his portrayals of the American middle class - also enjoys depicting various subcultures. Examples include Kids by Larry Clark (1995), for which he wrote the script, and Trash Humpers (2009), a film about white trash in the US. In Act da Fool, he opts for dark, delinquent girls who are all wearing Proenza Schouler. An interview with Korine on the collaboration with Proenza Schouler can be found at:

Alongside the work with Proenza Schouler, Harmony is a good friend of French designer agnès b., who takes centre stage in the Out of Fashion exhibition and has compiled her own film programme.
