Tuesday @ 7:00 pm
Director: George Kuchar
Runtime: 130 minutes
Partial inspiration for Zippy the Pinhead and eulogized by the NY Times as “a national treasure,” George Kuchar, with his twin brother, Mike, practically invented the campy, no-budget, anti-professional, tasteless, gender-bending underground style later embraced by John Waters and others. He made over 500 films in his career. Tonight we feature two of his best: The Devil’s Cleavage is a farcical send-up of Douglas Sirk-style melodramas, made “as if Sam Fuller and Sternberg had collaborated in shooting a script by Tennessee Williams and Russ Meyer” (Chuck Kleinhans, Jump Cut).
Screening is free and open to the public.
