Act da Fool, by Harmony Korine, 2010, for Proenza Schouler
Harmony Korine is a film director, producer, screenwriter and an author known for writing Kids and directing of Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy and Mister Lonely in which he also acts.
Act da Fool, a film commissioned by designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Herandez has been labelled by some commentators as degrading and exploitative. It is certainly in sharp contrast with the luxury image the Proenza Schouler brand projects. It remains however an exceptional piece and a healthy reminder of realities beyond the runway.
