A controversial flick shot in the small town of Marfa will soon make its debut next week.

"Marfa Girl" which was directed by Larry Clark is one of 15 movies that will compete in the Rome International Film Festival.

The movie was shot in only 21 days and even a local Marfa teenager was chosen for one of the lead roles.

In case you're not familiar with Larry Clark, he has directed edgy films like "Kids," "Bully" and "Ken Park."

Clark says "Marfa Girl" is about a teenager trying to navigate sex, drugs, rock 'n roll and even racism.

The film can be downloaded on on November 21.
