Marfa Girl (USA, 2012) – Australian Television Premiere
The new film from visionary director Larry Clark follows Adam, a directionless 16-year-old living in the working class US/Mexico border town of Marfa, Texas, and his sexual relationships with his teenage girlfriend, twenty something neighbour, aggressive local artist and high school teacher, while an unhinged, misogynistic border patrol agent watches over the neighbourhood. What ensues is a web of sex, drugs, and violence as the Latino skater punks adjust to their gritty, aimless life in the dead end town.

A Real Young Girl (France, 1976)
Catherine Breillat’s controversial exploration of a teenage girl’s sexuality, based on her own novel, centres on Alice, a precocious 1960s teen that explores her sexuality while lusting after a sawmill worker.
