16mm Films by George Kuchar
Doors at 7:00 PM, Screening at 7:30 PM
@ The Mini Microcinema - 1329 Main St.
A pivotal figure in the underground cinema of the ‘60s and ‘70s, George Kuchar (1942 – 2011) and his twin brother Michael, grew up in the Bronx and produced hundreds of hilariously goofy films that defy description to this day. George’s riotous works parody all that is Hollywood cinema. They make a mockery of classic cinema conventions on almost no budget and with little in the way of technical skills. "Kuchar's films are overtly insane. Anyone who lived in such a world would be mad inside an hour. … But the utter insanity, the insanity of perverted cliche, is the genuine unwholesome appeal of Kuchar's outlook. Something is very much wrong with the Kuchar world.” - Leonard Lipton
Screenings includes: Hold Me While I’m Naked (1966), Mosholu Holiday (1966), Pagan Rhapsody (1970), A Reason to Live (1976), and I, An Actress (1977).
