AMERICAN JUGGALO: The Short Juggalo Doc You Didn’t Know You Needed To See
Is there a subculture as weird and specific and largely ridiculed as the Juggalos? The fanbase of the Insane Clown Posse, tens of thousands of Juggalos come together every year for the Gathering of the Juggalos, a bacchanal of (frankly horrible) music, drugs and, one assumes, gross sex.
American Juggalo is a short doc that is made up of interviews with Juggalos at the Gathering - basically it’s the clown rap version of Heavy Metal Parking Lot. Director Sean Dunne approaches his subjects with an objective eye, letting the Juggalos speak for themselves. What Dunne discovers is that these are thoughtful, deep people who… aw, hell, who am I kidding - they’re generally moron white trash who are on very cheap drugs and appear to have enormous emotional problems.
Thanks to Evan Husney for pointing this out. The doc features nudity and swearing and is thus NSFW.
