Craven Sluck, The (1967) 16mm, black and white, 22.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

Mike Kuchar plunges into new depths with the pungent story of a woman's struggle for identity, recognition, sympathy and a good lay. This film features the titan talent from Jersey City, Floraine Connors, in a frightful comeback from obscurity. Supported by a competent cast of Munchkins, THE CRAVEN SLUCK lays bare the flabby bladders of the domestic Fleshpots, Rumpots, Sexpots and just plain Pots.

Light Sketches/Cycles () 16mm, color, 20 min

Genre: Experimental

LIGHT SKETCHES -- I composed a series of 16mm film strips, consisting of black opaque leader which had been etched and scribbled on by the pointed edge of a razor blade. I then took these scribbled strips of black film and threaded them through a projector, splicing the ends together, and photographed them with my movie camera -- double and triple exposing them and using different color filters for each overlapping exposure. Using my Zoom lens, photographing with color positive and color negative film and projecting on objects other than the screen, were further elaborations on my concept. CYCLES -- I have tried to capture the essence of each of the four Seasons as I have felt them when away by myself on a hike up in the mountains of New York State, or alone, peering out of my fifth floor window in the West Bronx.

Tales of the Bronx (1970) 16mm, black and white, 16 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Personal / Diary / Journal, Queer / Bi / Trans

From the elephant house of Bronx Zoo to the eight story tall Tabonga Terrace apartments on Sedgwich Avenue, living Mammals scream for their place in the Sun and drop heavy brown excretions in pots of porcelain that splash and clog and suck like huge toothless mouths on the lily-white mounds that lower into the hollow half submerged ovals, creating stagnant damp vacuums that cling and grab.

Variations (1968) 16mm, color, 15 min

Genre: Experimental

Green spills over purple ridges and into deep cut valleys. Blue surges up from rounds and hollows, blending with incandescent pink plains, revealing what seems to be the outline of the human face. Scribble spins on blue space in abstract, erratic lines, gaining in momentum and mass to form a coherent link to something recognizable. Crude, bold, darting lines. Black and white scribble. A lace work of electric sparks. These are some of the variations encountered in Kuchar's new film VARIATIONS. Live subjects are broken down into their basic outlines and are then reconstructed into startling concepts of spinning patterns and pulsating designs.

Secret of Wendel Samson, The (1966) 16mm, color, 33.5 min

Genre: Experimental

With Red Grooms as Wendell Samson. Who is Wendell Samson? He is a Universe in himself, but perhaps even more complex. The Cosmic Bubble is governed by the forces of electrical magnetic inertia. He is governed by a need. Unstable. A hunger to understand the impossible. Himself maybe. A quest to find the equation to happiness in a cosmic structure where happiness is not a physical property. He is a Star in the cluster of stars. A solar speck in the speckled nebula of souls. A silent phantom radiating in the heavens of shining phantoms. Floating on islands within islands, in a bubble, fifty trillion light years curved.

Faraway Places (1974) 16mm, color, 9.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Environment & Nature, Landscape & Architecture

I want to tell a story, to reveal a character and come to an understanding of why the events that happened earlier in the film happened, and with this realization we are back to the beginning -- only this time we understand why everything is the way it is. I do this with no dialogue. Landscape and figures are the narrative, and the color is the emotional tone.
