    San Francisco Art Institute: Living in Studio Kuchar.

    Comment by AB: SFAI celebrates decades of contributions to independent film in particular and to creativity in general by iconoclastic talent George Kuchar. Kuchar was also a longtime SFAI faculty member; he passed away in late 2011. Plenty to see here, and the best news? It's all worth seeing. Stop on by. This one's done up right.
