Marfa Girl director Larry Clark talks candidly to Filmmaker Magazine about his latest film and why he chose to distribute it digitally and solely through his own website. He says, "I wanted to make a movie for the Internet. These days everyone one is on it — emails, social networks and all that. I have kids and they are constantly connected to it. I send them a message and they get back to me straight away. It’s so hard to get a film made, especially an art film with your own final cut. So I thought, 'Why don’t I just do it myself, set up a website and get it going.' I decided to get rid of the middlemen, producers and the like. Anyway, they’re all crooks; I never got paid for my movies. The Internet is happening, people make a video and it gets a million hits, so f*** it, let’s do it."
