Ken Okiishi (b. 1978)
Telly and Casper (2000)
color/sound, 27 minutes

Telly and Casper is loosely based on Kids (1995), Larry Clark’s melodrama about teenagers terrorizing New York City and each other.  The two male protagonists of Okiishi’s film seem to be stuck negotiating the territory demarcated by Clark’s film, and rehearsing its erotic fantasies about adolescents and urban decay.
