Presented in partnership with Something Weird Video...

The American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) represents the world's largest theatrical catalog of exploitation cinema. Their home video line presents a diverse selection of movies, ranging from new preservations of classics from the vast library of Something Weird to the wildest in shot-on-video (SOV) titles. Vinegar Syndrome’s sister company, OCN Distribution, is thrilled to be representing this diverse and unique home video line! 

No one will ever make movies like Doris Wishman made movies. One of the most prolific women filmmakers in the history of American cinema, writer-director-editor Wishman created collisions between surrealism and exploitation that feel like they materialized from an alternate universe. THE FILMS OF DORIS WISHMAN: THE DAYLIGHT YEARS surveys the early, sun-soaked nudist era of Wishman's career. From NUDE ON THE MOON (Wishman's dreamlike sci-fi triumph) to HIDEOUT IN THE SUN (a crackpot nudie-noir) AGFA + Something Weird are honored to present these effervescent DIY treasures in gorgeous new restorations.
