BUFFALO JUGGALOS a film by Scott Cummings
"An experimental exploration and celebration of the Juggalo subculture in Buffalo, New York. Long and static takes show Juggalos engaged in their favorite activities, first and foremost of which - causing mayhem. Among these seemingly random acts of the everyday, preening, sexual gratification, explosions and destruction, a tentative narrative begins to emerge."
