Film Screening with Mike Kuchar

Mike Kuchar appears in the flesh to present two of his most infectious films that delve deeper into San Francisco's politics of contagion. Red Grooms stars in The Secret of Wendel Samson (1966, 33 mins), described by Jack Stevenson as "a surreal, troubled rumination on sexual need and the entanglements of relationships." Paint drips and body fluids ooze in The Pictures of Dorian Gay (1995, 23 mins), a 'tell all' and 'hide nothing' documentary about two exuberant San Francisco men in the shadow of the AIDS crisis.
