2014, USA, 30min, Experimental Short
An experimental exploration and celebration of the Juggalo subculture in Buffalo, New York. Long and static takes of Juggalos engaged in their favorite activities, first and foremost of which – causing mayhem. Among these seemingly random acts of the everyday, preening, sexual gratification, backyard wrestling, explosions and destruction, a tentative narrative begins to emerge.

“[A] rigorously staged series of tableaus of one of America’s most-feared subcultures making a depressed urban space their own.”
