Underground film director and video artist George Kuchar was known for his "low-fi" and DIY aesthetic, and was a decisive influence on No Wave Cinema, as well as artists and filmmakers such as John Waters, Andy Warhol, Todd Solondz, and David Lynch, among others. In his 40-year career as a filmmaker, Kuchar directed over 200 films and videos, including 15 8mm films made in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his twin brother Mike Kuchar, as well as many of his students' short films at the San Francisco Art Institute. His 1977 film "I, An Actress," a screen test of student actress Barbera Lapsley, was selected by the National Film Registry in 2011.
