Plot Summary

In the mid-1950s, Bronx-born adolescent twin brothers George and Mike Kuchar borrowed a relative's 8mm camera and began making their own films. Initially unaware that an underground film scene existed, the tirelessly prolific brothers soon gained the attention of fellow movie-makers like Buck Henry and John Waters. This documentary portrait features interviews with the brothers and their fans, including cartoonist Bill Griffith and filmmaker Guy Maddin, as well as clips from their quirky epics.

    You don't have to have ever seen any of their movies to enjoy It Came From Kuchar, directed by one of George's former students, Jennifer M. Kroot. But you'll probably want to catch up with their work afterward. show more

    The documentary is interesting as a human story. And anyone who loves the Kuchar brothers' films or underground cinema in general will take extra pleasure in it. show more
