Abstract:

Tiré du site Internet amazon.com: "Despite being a consummate polymath, George Kuchar (1942-2011) is best known as a pioneering underground film and video maker with a disarming do-it-yourself aesthetic and a hilariously eccentric sensibility. Quirky and ingenious, heartfelt and campy, Kuchar's movies know no boundaries and are an entirely unique development in the history of cinema. The artist's characteristic instinct for kitsch, his humor and conceptual brilliance, were not confined to the screen alone ; they can be glimpsed in all the activities he carried out throughout his life. This book, edited by Andrew Lampert, collects a wide swath of previously uncollected and newly unearthed writings and visual work, including essays, comics, drawings, paintings, photographs, film stills, scripts, movie blurbs, correspondence, letters of recommendation for his students, documentation of his UFO sightings, excerpts from his dream journal, selections from his private notebooks and much more."

Tiré du site Internet de Primary Information: "Edited by Andrew Lampert, this expansive anthology explores the writings that underscore George Kuchar's work and life. The most comprehensive collection of writings on the artist to date, this volume features film scripts, comics, drawings, paintings, correspondence, autobiographical musings, tales of UFO encounters, student recommendation letters, emails, photos, film stills, and a wide range of ephemeral, often hysterical autobiographical and critical writings by the late auteur behind such underground film classics as Hold Me While I'm Naked, The Weather Diaries, and I, an Actress."
