This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Harmony Korine. Korine made his directorial debut with the controversial Gummo in 1997. Set around the impoverished residents of Xenia, Ohio, the film presents an authentic look at blue-collar life and poverty-line existence. Julien donkey-boy (1999) confirmed the director as one of the most unique voices in contemporary American cinema. In 2013, Korine delivered his least divisive and most commercially successful work to date with Spring Breakers. The interview covered topics such as whether spring break was as debauched as Korine depicted it; location as a key facet of his work; and his avoidance of offering any overt moral views on the actions of the characters in Spring Breakers.
