About Last Night: Kids 20th Anniversary at BAMcinemaFest

Last night, members of the cast and crew of Larry Clark's controversial film Kids reunited at BAM for a special 20th Anniversary screening, part of BAMcinemaFest 2015. It was the first time in over fifteen years that Clark, writer Harmony Korine, and actors Chloë Sevigny, Rosario Dawson, and Leo Fitzpatrick, as well as many other former "kids" who appeared in the film, were in the same room together, and the first time in a while that they—and much of the audience—had watched the raw, vérité portrait of urban adolescence.

Following the screening, which featured Clark's absolutely pristine personal 35mm print of the film, critic Eric Hynes (Rolling Stone, The New York Times) led a Q&A with Clark, Korine, Sevigny, Dawson, Fitzpatrick, producer Cary Woods, and distribution executive Eamonn Bowles. Here are some excerpts from their conversation:

Afterwards, the cast and crew headed to local bar Frank's Cocktail Lounge for an afterparty, where the DJ played music from the film's soundtrack.
