8MM Films by George and Mike Kuchar

Saturday, Jan 15, 2011

The Bronx-born Kuchar Brothers made their own dime-store version of Hollywood with an 8mm camera.

Anita Needs Me

1963, 16 mins. An overheated tale of lust, guilt, and Mom, made as a response to the French New Wave.

Sylvia’s Promise

1962, 9 mins. A visually spectacular tale of tortured love, 1960s rock music, and dancing.

A Town Called Tempest

1963, 33 mins. Extreme weather and melodrama abound in this torrid tour de force.
