Euro Beat: Boys And Girls Of Larry Clark's New Paris Film, THE SMELL OF US, Get A Web Series

Brian Clark, European Editor
Larry Clark (Kids, Bully) is branching out a bit for his upcoming film, The Smell of Us, which takes place in France and is co-written by a French poet he met at an exhibition in Paris, Matthieu Landais. Emphasis on "a bit," though, since the plot supposedly concerns teenage "self-destructive skateboarders."

Rocker Pete Doherety will apparently play a role in the film, but, as usual, the focus is on messed up adolescents. And now, courtesy of a new web series, you can meet them and take part in their summer shooting a movie with Clark. Directed by Thomas Kimmerlin, A Summer With Larry Clark's Kids will apparently document the lives of the four principal skaters, Théo, Hugo, Diane and Lucas as they act in the film. It premieres tomorrow, July 17 on the site of the French Newspaper Liberation, and will unspool weekly in eight episodes lasting six minutes each. For now though, you can get a look at the trailer, which feels like it could be advertising an actual Clark film.
