Trash Humpers is a new movie by Harmony Korine, shot on VHS tape and copied onto other VHS tapes for that familiar tape re-use and re-copied home movie experience. He says of the film:

“I remember when I was a child there was a small group of elderly people who would hang out in the back alleys and under bridges by my house. They always seemed to be getting drunk and dancing. One night I looked out my bedroom window and saw a group of them humping trash cans and laughing. It sounded like they were speaking a strange invented language. This is a movie about them.”

indieWIRE has a clip of the movie here and Harmony Korine’s main fansite is here.

Cornell’s Dance Department features the class Hip-Hop, Hollywood, and Home Movies: Exploring Movement and Media, incorporating home video production.

This course is a laboratory for generating and exploring contemporary dance forms. Monday sessions are devoted to viewing media and discussion. We will be looking at early B-boy films, recent dance-battle documentaries, classic dance clips from Hollywood films, and other related pieces (Black Dance, Show Dance, Art Dance). Wednesday is a laboratory for trying out movements and creating simple dance/music videos (home-movies). This course will be of special value for choreographers using popular dance forms and those interested in the history of popular culture. Everyone must be willing and able to improvise dance moves, teach classmates and exchange movement ideas.

In the five minute montage, which you can view below, Jacko sings with his kids and performs a joke “chicken” dance.

Daniel Kraus revisits the mini-VHS films from his teen years on his blog Francis Ford Iowa. He explains:

Hi. My name is Dan. I’m a novelist and filmmaker. You’re going to wonder how that’s possible after spending some time on this blog. See, when I was growing up in Iowa, I made movies with my friends. Many of them were remakes of movies I liked, like Misery or The Godfather. Others were originals, with catchy titles like The Bastard Chicken Clock from Hell and Dirt 2. But all of them were awful. And now, to lead up to the publication of my new book, The Monster Variations, I’m blogging my old movies chronologically for your enjoyment. So come with me, won’t you? Let’s feel the pain together.
