Whole Grain: Experiments in Film & Video — The Underground World of Mike and George Kuchar

Join us on Saturday, December 2, at 4:00 pm, for The Underground World of Mike and George Kuchar, an evening of whimsical and outrageous art movies that will undermine your definition of “art movie.”

Fraternal twins George and Mike, of The Kuchar brothers, were each a prominent avant-garde filmmaker by the late 60s and began making films as teens in New York City, creating intentionally amateurish films with campy acting, colorful sets, fanciful characters, and eccentric subject matter. This program features two films by George, who passed away in 2011, and one by Mike, who recently won the Guggenheim fellowship in Film-Video. This event is part of Whole Grain, our new experimental film and video series.

The Whole Grain series presents six programs that explore classic and contemporary work in experimental film and video. The schedule in brief:
