Larry Clark’s ‘The Smell of Us’ to World Premiere in Venice

LONDON — Larry Clark’s Paris skateboarders pic “The Smell of Us” will have its world premiere in Venice Days, an independent sidebar running during the Venice Film Festival.

The pic, which stars Michael Pitt, Alex Martin and Niseem Theillaud, is “the portrait of a group of self-destructive skateboarders in Paris,” Clark said.

It was written with Mathieu Landais during Clark’s “new life” in Paris. Wild Bunch is handling international sales.

The film, the first Clark’s made outside the U.S., comes nearly 20 years after the release of his controversial “Kids.”

The film revolves around a group of kids who meet up everyday at the Dome, behind Paris’ Museum of Modern Art and in front of the Eiffel Tower. Here they can skate, play around and even have sex. Two of them are inseparable, bonding over their dysfunctional families. But a sense of ennui, the allure of easy money and online anonymity will all have a hand in smashing their universe.

The pic will screen as part of the Venice Days lineup, which is backed by ANAC and 100Autori, on Aug. 31.
