George Kuchar

George Kuchar is best known for the films and videos he made beginning in the mid-1950s. A seminal influence on John Waters among many others, these uniquely irreverent films were at the forefront of the New York underground film scene. George Kuchar began teaching at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1971, and he remained in San Francisco, collaborating with his students, until his death in 2011.
