Underground filmmaker to talk

Underground filmmaker George Kuchar will give a video screening and lecture on Saturday, April 5, from 7-9 p.m. in Northrop Hall, rm. 122.

Part of the Media Arts Department International Cinema Lecture Series, the screening and discussion are free and open to the public.

Kuchar, an instructor at the San Francisco Art Institute, began making low budget films in the 1950ís with his twin brother Mike. As their work expanded, they each became respected underground filmmakers, receiving citations from film artists like Andy Warhol, John Waters, David Lynch and Tim Burton.

George Kuchar recently won the Maya Deren Award from the American Film Institute, as well as a Los Angeles Film Critics Award. Retrospectives of his film and video work can be found in museums and institutions from Queens, N.Y. to San Francisco, Calif.
