Harmony Korine is a young American filmmaker, writer, video artist, and author of the scenario for Kids, creator and director of Gummo. He is currently working on a new feature film, Julien Donkey Boy, to premier in September at the Venice Film Festival. Commenting on his project for Point d'Ironie, he writes:
"All I do is smoke cigarettes and complain. I'm happy only every once in a while and that is when I see something in one of my pictures that I know is good. These pictures are of boys fucking and sucking each other. I have no genuine reason for them being made, only that at a certain time I felt they should exist. Maybe one day I will be happy again."

The images derive from an unreleased video by Harmony Korine, tentatively entitled The Ass Sanctuary.
