'It Came from Kuchar' dir. Jennifer M. Kroot (trailer)

By the early '60s twin brothers George and Mike Kuchar pioneered and lead New York's underground film scene. They were known as the "8mm Mozarts" for their command of "low-fi" filming, and unconventional storylines and plots. Between the two they are responsible for directing over 200 works including: The Thief and the Stripper (1959), I was a Teenage Rumpot (1960), and Confessions of Babette (1963).

Director Jennifer M. Kroot documents the lives, relationship, craft and impact the Kuchars have on underground film in It Came from Kuchar. Through interviews, archived footage, and humor, Kroot offers insight to the bizarre world of brotherhood and film with George and Mike Kuchar.

Upcoming Screenings:

September 15: Sydney queerDOC09

September 24: Cambridge International Film Festival

Kuchar retrospectives: September 24th at 11:30pm/Friday, September 25th at 9pm

September 24: Atlantic Film Festival
