Last month, at a 20th anniversary screening of Kids, Hamilton Harris premiered a teaser for his forthcoming documentary about the skate kids who were featured in Larry Clark’s seminal film. When we spoke to Harris about The Kids, he still hadn’t released the teaser to the public, but now it’s online, via a newly launched Kickstarter.
The teaser includes some of what you can expect to see in the documentary: ’90s skateboarding footage, archival video and photos of Kids stars like Harold Hunter, and interviews with Hunter’s brother Ronald, Ben Lee, Chloe Sevigny, and others.
Check out the Kickstarter page for more about the fundraiser, which aims to rake in $81,000 for shooting interviews, digitizing archival footage, and editing a sample cut that can be pitched to investors. Perks include a blunt rolling lesson from Harris (in case the lesson he offered in Kids wasn’t detailed enough) and a stay in the East Village apartment building where Telly the Virgin Surgeon lived (a studio in the building is on AirBNB). Sorry, a double date with Rosario and Chloe is not among the perks.
