Vice have released a short Harmony Korine documentary as part of their Profiles series – “interesting people deserving attention” – about a kid living in the rough backwoods of Alabama.
Cambo, our enigmatic protagonist, fled to the woods to escape his parents’ brutal divorce. Two years later and he’s still there, despite falling for a girl with a sexy bow in her hand and having a baby with her.
It’s a classic dropping-out-of-society tale brought to life by Cambo’s unusual words of wisdom.
“I can’t tell you what the stock market looks like right now. I can’t even really tell you what the fuck the stock market is. But I’ll tell you this. When the it hits the fan and you’re all in the houses with no power and miserable, I’ll be out here with a smile on my face.”
