RADIO // Close ListeningGeorge Kuchar Interview
Hosted by Charles Bernstein
Originally aired 9/28/09
George Kuchar talks with Charles Bernstein about the role politics plays in his work in a wide-ranging and comic discussion that also touches on his switch from super 8 to 16mm film to video, the influence of early television on his work, and his relation to other key members of the New American Cinema. George Kuchar’s many films include Hold Me While I'm Naked (1966), Pagan Rhapsody (1970), Devil's Cleavage (1973), and, in more recent years, a remarkable set of self-documenting films called the Weather Diaries. It Came From Kuchar, Jennifer Kroot's documentary film on the life of George and his twin brother and collaborator Mike Kuchar was released in early 2009 (29 minutes).
