DESCRIPTION

With Mike Kuchar, Free Form Film Festival Curator Ryan Wylie, and Video Data Bank Collection Manager Tom Colley in person!

Note the change in day!

Filmforum pays tribute to the late great George Kuchar with an evening of his video work.  While his decades of films are most often screened, George played and made remarkable works on video for many years, most notably his Weather Diary series, but also much more.

This program was curated by Abina Manning of Video Data Bank, which distributes videos by the Kuchar Brothers.  Quite a few are probably Los Angeles premieres!

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 videos.

We’ll be screening new works by Mike Kuchar on Sunday night.
