Together with his twin brother Mike, George Kuchar was one of the key filmmakers of the New York camp underground of the '60s and '70s.

Proudly no budget, his 8mm and 16mm shorts show a deep love of Hollywood melodrama as distilled through a distinctly lurid style.

Included in this program are the semi-autobiographical classic, Hold Me While I'm Naked (1966), the searing, tragic Pagan Rhapsody (1970), & the quirkily atmospheric 'weather diary' Wild Night in El Reno (1977).

Also screening: Eclipse of the Sun Virgin (1967) and The Mongreloid (1978).
