Cult classic set for Deptford Cinema

Deptford Cinema will screen the film Gummo this Friday.

Set in Xenia, Ohio, a tornado has destroyed more than half the small town, killing the same number of residents.

Solomon and Tummler, two bored teenage boys, live nihilistic lives killing cats, sniffing glue, and meeting friends.

One of them is a mute skateboarder who walks around town wearing pink rabbit ears, playing an accordion.

Gummo, written and directed by very young Korine in 1997, was called the worst movie of the year by New York Times.

But since then it has become a cult classic and gained many fans around the world.

Gummo, Friday, June 8 at 8pm; Deptford Cinema, 39 Deptford Broadway, Lewisham, SE8 4PQ. Tickets are £6 or £4.50 concessions. deptfordcinema.org
