Director Larry Clark gained international notoriety for his 1995 film Kids, which featured a candid depiction of sexually active teenagers in New York City. That film was the subject of considerable controversy and received an Nc-17 rating, but it was a commercial success and clips from the movie have been viewed millions of times on YouTube (for all the wrong reasons? Possibly.) 17 years later, Clark is making a different sort of splash. He is releasing his latest film, Marfa Girl, exclusively through the Internet, with no releases planned for theaters or home video. Marfa Girl, which tells the story of a culture clash in the small town of Marfa, Texas, made a big splash at the Rome Film Festival, where it won top honors. Clark wasn't the only person at Rome who embraced online video; the festival itself featured plenty of online footage in hopes of making it less of an insider experience. »
