  • Hold Me While I’m Naked

    1966. USA. Directed by George Kuchar. With Donna Kerness, George Kuchar, Stella Kuchar, Andrea Lunin. The loosely autobiographical Hold Me While I’m Naked is both the story of a frustrated filmmaker trying to prove his artistic integrity through his next production, and Kuchar’s homage to Douglas Sirk’s lush Hollywood melodramas. 15 min.

  • I, an Actress

    1977. USA. Directed by George Kuchar. With Barbara Lapsley, Kuchar. A screen test for Kuchar’s acting student Barbara Lapsley, who reads from a ludicrous script to a curly-haired dummy until Kuchar himself steps into the frame, instructing his actress in how to read her lines. 9 min.

  • My First Movie

    1968. Germany. Directed by Christoph Schlingensief. Schlingensief’s first movie, shot on 8mm when he was eight years old. In German; English subtitles. 10 min.

  • Hey Mum, Let’s Shoot a Movie

    1977. Germany. Directed by Christoph Schlingensief. With Franz R. Schmoll, Doris Stommel, Leni Bauer, Hans Michel, Martina Wolfs, Andreas Aretz. This early short movie, starring members of the director’s family, is dedicated to his obsession with filmmaking. The meta-relationship between filmmaking and the history of film would continue to be one of Schlingensief’s recurring topics. In German; English subtitles. 24 min.

  • Say Goodbye to the Story (ATT 1/11)

    2011. Germany. Directed by Christoph Schlingensief. With Katharina Schlothauer, Stefan Kolosko, Robert Stadlober, Irm Hermann, Björn Thors.
