On 2012, acclaimed director Larry Clark (Kids, Ken Park) premiered Marfa Girl during the Rome Film Festival, taking home the Marcus Aurelius Award for Best Film. Later that year, the movie was released on the director’s website for a one-day streaming access at a price of $6 with no intentions of taking it to the big screen. Now, Breaking Glass Pictures has partnered with Clark to finally release it on theaters and VOD this month.
Set in Marfa, a small town in Texas, the film centers on Adam (Adam Mediano), a directionless, half-white, half-Hispanic teenager in the days surrounding his sixteenth birthday. Adam’s relationships and interactions with the other inhabitants of the small town, including his girlfriend Inez (Mercedes Maxwell), his 23-year-old neighbor Donna (Indigo Rael), his teacher (Lindsay Jones), a newly arrived local artist (Drake Burnette), and a crazed border patrol agent are also depicted. What ensues is a web of sex, violence and punk rock.
Marfa Girl will be released theatrically in New York & Los Angeles on Friday March 27, and on April 3 in other major cities and VOD platforms, including all cable providers, iTunes, Amazon Instant, Blockbuster, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation, and Xbox.
