Join Andrew Lampert, editor of The George Kuchar Reader, for a reading from Kuchar’s notebooks and a screening of his rarely-seen 16mm films Eclipse of the Sun Virgin (1967, 15 min.), Power of the Press (1977, 16 min.), Forever and Always (1978, 20 min.), and Yolanda (1981, 22 min.).

Over the course of his 50 year career, from his teenage years in the Bronx until his untimely death in 2011, George Kuchar created an incomparable body of nearly 350 films and videos. Teeming with ribald humor and unswerving illogic, and with a refined sense of the absurd and a “no budget, no problem” attitude, his ceaseless output veered from outlandish spoofs on schlocky Hollywood melodramas to intimate documents of his everyday life.
