With Mike Kuchar, Free Form Film festival Curator Ryan Wylie, and Video Data Bank Collection Manager Tom Colley in person!
Mike Kuchar returns to Filmforum with new video works. Mixing the romantic yearnings of poetic souls, strapping young men, and the eloquent and peculiar fascination that he has for aliens and architecture, Mike Kuchar continues to produce his own unique brand of video art. Join us for a very special evening, which will probably include a couple of Mike’s actors as well.
We’re delighted to partner with the Free Form Film Festival this weekend, and are really honored to have Mike Kuchar in person for both evenings as well. We also have, from VDB, Tom Colley, who has been overseeing the preservation work on the Kuchar videos.
