Buffalo Juggalos

United States
2014 — 30' / Color



More fascinating than the horrorcore hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse are its fans, who have created a thriving subculture, the Juggalos, whose philosophy and lifestyle are mysterious to the uninitiated. Filmmaker Scott Cummings took an interest in the Juggalo community in his hometown of Buffalo, New York, filming them without judgment or irony. In long, static and vaguely disturbing shots, Juggalos in scary clown makeup go about their everyday lives, from the most mundane household chores to absurd and shocking acts of violence. Somewhere between filmed performance and a surrealistic sociological experiment, Buffalo Juggalos is an enigmatic work whose greatest virtue is that it does not look for answers.
