Photographer and director Larry Clark’s new film, “Marfa Girl,” is pushing the envelope on digital distribution. Not only will it not be screened in theaters, but it won’t even be available on Blu-Ray or DVD either. You can stream it from Clark’s Web site for US$5.99 — but only for twenty-four hours, starting about two hours ago. After that, it’s gone, or so Clark claims. I find it hard to believe that “Marfa Girl” won’t eventually show up on disc or become continually available for paid download or streaming at some point in the future, but as marketing gimmicks go, this one caught my attention, anyhow.
