ALEXANDER PERKINS, AN AMERICAN JUGGALO

A couple of years we caught up with filmmaker Sean Dunne after he'd completed his documentary short American Juggalo, a look into Detroit rappers Insane Clown Posse's rabid fanbase. Juggalos - or Juggalettes if female - distinguish themselves with clown-like make up, tattoos dedicated to ICP, a taste for cheap soft drink brand Faygo and pilgrimages to the Gathering, a yearly event where ICP and other acts perform. While the Juggalos consider themselves to be a diverse, inclusive community, they've been called an organised gang linked to crimes in the U.S., well before the recent killer clown craze. 

Sean has created a sequel to his original film, a tighter focussed affair mainly following Juggalo Alexander "Less Legs" Perkins, a disabled man who finds solidarity and enjoyment within the group:
