Portland filmmaker Bob Moricz began making films in the third grade, but life changed for him after meeting George Kuchar and being invited to witness the goings-on in Kuchar’s “AC/DC Psychotronic Teleplays” class at the San Francisco Art Institute. Brazenly anti-formalist, Moricz’s trans-genre film entertainments utilize conventional cinematic tropes only to reveal the banal falsities contained within them, ultimately transcending their narrow scope by opening up new revelations through neo-expressionistic no-fi imagery. Included in this mixtape of short films and excerpts are CHARLEMAGNE! (2012), NAKED PREACHER LADY (2012), I AM UGLY AND I WANT TO DIE SO WHY DON’T YOU JUST PLEASE FUCK ME (2010), BUMPS (2009), THE SLAVES OF DESTRUCTO (2007), A NIGHT IN THE LIFE OF DORIS DOLORES (2007), NOTHING IS GOOD (2006), A BIG ASS LUST FOR SPEED (2001), RICH LITTLE RICHARD III VERSUS THE CRACK WHORE MARINE CORPS (2000), GUTWRENCHED (1991), and more. (90 mins.)
Director Bob Moricz will be in attendance to introduce the program.
