Director: Doris Wishman
Plot Sypnosis:

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.

directed by: Doris Wishman
starring: Various
1960-1965 / 428 min (combined) / 1.37:1 / English DTS-HD MA 1.0
