Variety reports that nine influential experimental films directed by avant-garde gay filmmaker Kenneth Anger and by brothers George and Mike Kuchar will be preserved by the National Foundation for Film Preservation. The foundation will partner with Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation to undertake the preservation. "Kenneth Anger and the Kuchar brothers are the aorta of the original underground film movement," said out director John Waters in a statement. "Without their incredible pioneering influence, the independent film world could never have been born." The foundation was founded in 1990 by Scorsese and nine other directors--Francis Ford Coppola, Robert Redford, Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, Robert Altman, Clint Eastwood, Stanley Kubrick, George Lucas, and Sydney Pollack--to help protect and preserve motion picture history.
