Directed by Chris Fuller


A "starkly radical film debut of uncommon power and artistic principle," Chris Fuller's Loren Cass is a vivid tale of troubled youth that "makes even Larry Clark (Kids) look tame by comparison" (Variety). Utilizing a small cast of unknowns (including writer/director Fuller, under the name "Lewis Brogan"), acutely detailed 16mm photography, and "extraordinary sound work" (The New York Times) that mixes disembodied voices ranging from Charles Bukowski to French poet Robert Desnos with graphic news footage of the American Dream turned nightmare, Loren Cass conjures an authentic and menacing emotional landscape shared by three young people in contemporary suburban Florida. Though scripted by Fuller in the aftermath of the 1996 St. Petersburg riots when he was just 15 years old, this "lyrical portrait of angry, disaffected teens" (Village Voice) evokes the unquenchable need, psychic pain and seething rage of disenfranchised youth from any era. Jason (Travis Maynard), a pierced and inked skinhead, takes impulsive and self destructive chances with everyone and everything around him, while his garage mechanic friend Cale (Fuller) embarks on a fleeting, benumbed romance with Nicole (Kayla Tabish), a promiscuous diner waitress.

"A tour de force of mood and milieu" (The New York Times), Jason, Cale, and Nicole's coolly hypnotic, realistic journey to nowhere reveals the bruised young underbelly of a new American century.
