'Inside the Bum' by Frank and Tyrone Lebon


‘Inside the Bum’ documents the making of Harmony Korine’s film ‘The Beach Bum’ – starring Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill, Isla Fisher, Snoop Dogg, and Zac Efron.

In October 2017, the Lebon brothers were invited onto the set of the film for six weeks. Given the freedom to wander the set as they pleased, the Lebons received unrestricted access and a privileged insight into the filmmaking process of Korine - a long-time inspiration for both brothers.

They came home with thousands of photographs and over fifty hours of footage, resulting in two distinct pieces of collaborative work - a twenty-minute film and this photobook.

Korine’s colourful set provided a bountiful stream of wild and wacky scenarios to document, from naked extras destroying Miami mansions to Moondog (McConaughey) setting boats on fire and dancing in tinfoil underwear. The book is a compilation of photographs, video stills, written diary entries, call sheets, and vintage Florida tourist paraphernalia taped together into a scrapbook of sorts; part on-set documentary photography, part notebook of thoughts, questions and anecdotes for their film.
