90’s Flashback | KIDS
No other Film represents 90’s American Independent Cinema quite like KIDS
It was written by Harmony Korine, directed by Larry Clark, and produced by Gus Van Sant.
It introduced the world to Chloe Sevigny and Rosario Dawson.
It featured a blend of tracks by A Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys and John Coltrane, among others.
And most of all, the controversial Film raised AIDS awareness at a time when it was highly stigmatized.
Kids follows a group young, unsupervised kids in New York. One girl has just been diagnosed with HIV and is trying to notify the boy who gave it to her, who is on a quest to sexually prey upon virgin girls. The film follows these characters and their friends through the day, hanging out, playing, carousing, and going to parties. Each scene is intriguing and disturbing – conveying an urban reality that includes drugs, sex, guns, and disease; and yet never letting you forget these are *kids*, some of them barely in puberty.
