Warhol On Film: A Weekend Of Recently Restored Films ICA London

Bookmark and Share

In 1965 Warhol purchased a sound-on-film Auricon camera and began depicting the personalities he called “superstars”. The frame was mostly static, the shots were uninterrupted. Whatever happened in front of the camera over the course of a single setup and a 35-minute reel was the movie, and the results could be unlike any movies ever made.

Chelsea Girls, Warhol’s 1966 classic Chelsea Girls, screened in its original double-16mm projected format from newly restored prints. This 3 hour epic set in New York’s infamous Hotel Chelsea features a cast of Warhol superstars including Nico, International Velvet, Gerard Malanga and filmmaker Marie Menken, among many others.

Sleep, Free This six-hour marathon captures Warhol’s close friend and poet John Giorno as he sleeps – an experiment in 'anti-film', screened from a set of newly restored prints.

Vinyl,  Warhol’s 1965 feature length adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, starring Gerard Malanga, Edie Sedgwick, Ondine and others, with music from The Kinks and The Rolling Stones. Screened from a newly restored print.
