THE KIDS Will Premiere on Friday, June 11th at 8:00pm ET at the Tribeca Film Festival.
In the early 1990s, before New York City’s mass gentrification, a group of disparate youth ventured outside their broken homes into the city’s brutal streets. United by skateboarding, they cultivated a family and built a unique lifestyle that ultimately inspired Larry Clark’s 1995 groundbreaking film, KIDS. The crew became overnight commodities, thrust into the mainstream spotlight. Left adrift under the bright lights, some discovered transcendent lives and careers — while others, abandoned and unequipped to handle fame, suffered fatal consequences.
