Clark asks Whassup

05.21.2004

One of the most controversial directors of recent years will write and direct WASSUP ROCKERS in Los Angeles for release in 2005. Larry Clark, the man behind such shockingly disturbing films like KIDS, BULLY, and KEN PARK, will tell the story of a group of largely Hispanic teenagers who, instead of conforming to the hip-hop culture of their neighborhood, ride skateboards, listen to punk rock and wear their clothes tight. Constantly harassed, they take buses to Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Hollywood, where they skate and catch the attention of the local rich girls, inevitably leading to trouble with parents, police and boyfriends. Clark made a name for himself long before he made his first movie. His photographic work of the 60's and 70's shocked viewers with blatant displays of drug addiction, sex, and violence. Legend has it his own drug and alcohol problems led to a prison term of 19 months for shooting a man in the arm during a card game. Love him or hate him, Clark makes you want to look - even if you turn away seconds later.
