From director Harmony Korine comes Julien Donkey-Boy, an experimental portrait about the effects of schizophrenia and the fragmentation it can produce. Using vignettes and the ultra-reality film technique Dogma 95, Korine boldly introduces audiences to the world of Julien, a schizophrenic with a deeply troubled family life. Escaping home, Julien hits the streets of New York to interact with humanity, all while battling his own inner demons and artificial reality.
