      Celluloid Wednesdays: Avant Garde Classics –George Kuchar Early Works

      12/13/2017

      7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13

      George Kuchar ranks as one of the most prolific American independent film and video makers. With his homemade Super 8 and 16 mm potboilers and melodramas of the ‘50s, ’60s and ’70s, he became legendary as a distinctive and outrageous underground filmmaker whose work influenced many other artists, including Andy Warhol, John Waters, David Lynch and Darren Aronofsky. This screening of his early works is for adults only; adult content. The 16 mm prints are from Anthology Film Archives. Celluloid Wednesdays is a midweek film series that offers audiences the chance to view celluloid film prints, historical narratives, documentaries, ethnographic and experimental films on the big screen. Free; use the museum’s 7th Avenue entrance.
