Hold Me While I’m Naked (1966) George Kuchar

“In 1964, Susan Sontag published her seminal essay, “Notes on Camp.” Seeking to define an increasingly prevalent cultural trend, she described a sensibility of passionate extravagance that cannibalised other forms of both high and popular art, even as it violated their most sacred tenets in its seeming trivialisation of traditionally serious subject matter. Two years after its publication, American underground filmmaker George Kuchar created Hold Me While I’m Naked, a film that has come to stand as one of camp’s defining texts.” For more, see: Deborah Allison, Hold Me While I’m Naked: Notes on a Camp Classic,” Senses of Cinema, Issue 22, July 26, 2004.
