Details

Scenes from the life of Andy Warhol, as seen by three pioneer avant-garde filmmakers and close friends of the Pop-artist. Jonas Mekas, the irrepressible force behind the promotion and preservation of experimental film, is also known for his rapid-fire diary films. Award Presentation to Andy Warhol documents Mekas giving Warhol the Film Culture Independent Film Award. His Scenes from the Life chronicles not only Andy Warhol, but also the social and cultural excitement that swirled around him, throbbing to a hypnotic Velvet Underground beat. Willard Maas was husband of filmmaker, painter and actress Marie Menken. Their films have in common a lyric lightness and a love for jolting visual rhythms. 'Willard and Marie were the last of the great Bohemians. They wrote and filmed and drank (their friends called them 'scholary drunks') and were involved with all the modern poets. Marie was one of the first to do a film with stop-time. She filmed lots of short movies, some with Willard, and she even did one on a day in my life' - Andy Warhol This DVD Contains: Award Presentation to Andy Warhol, Jonas Mekas, 1963, 12 mins - with Gerard Malanga, Baby Jane Holzer, Ivy Nicholson, Gregory Markopoulos Andy Warhol's Silver Flotations, Willard Maas, 1964, 4 mins Andy Warhol, Marie Menken, 1965, 18 mins Anthropological Sketches: Friendships And Intersections - Scenes From The Life Of Andy Warhol, Jonas Mekas, 1963-90, 35 mins - with Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, Tuli Kupfenberg, Ed Sanders, George Maciunas, Barbara Rubin, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Mick Jagger...
