Join us for a film retrospective with George and Mike Kuchar, pioneers in the American underground film movement of the 1960s who have had their films screened internationally. The Kuchar twins were born in 1942 in New York and began making films in 1956. They helped make the 8 mm format popular at the time. Then, in 1965, Mike made his first 16 mm film, Sins of the Fleshapoids, a low budget science fiction camp epic that became his most famous work. The Kuchar Brothers have deeply influenced countless filmmakers including John Waters. Their combined filmography includes hundreds of works in video 8mm and 16mm.
