GEORGE: THE STORY OF GEORGE MACIUNAS AND FLUXUS is a feature documentary as mercurial as its subject, George Maciunas, impresario of the international avant-garde art movement Fluxus (1962-78). Fascinatingly contradictory interviews with artists, including Yoko Ono, Jonas Mekas, and Nam June Paik, and inventive sound and screen design, shape this rich portrait of a visionary artist. Dedicated to cooperative methods and expanded processes, everything could be Fluxus: kits, shops, festivals, islands, weddings, food, or Flux Lofts - the first network of artist-owned lofts in SoHo, New York. The iconoclastic Maciunas and the spirit of Fluxus provoke questions still critical to artists working today.
