From the collection of The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh

The legacy of Andy Warhol has been a centerpiece of our exposure to American pop culture for decades, however, his work in the medium of film is less known and rarely available for public view. In the early 1970’s Warhol withdrew his films from authorized distribution, so the prolific five year period of his experimental work in film (1963-1967) is less famous than his silk-screens and works in other disciplines. Thanks to the safekeeping by the Museum of Modern Art in New York of the Andy Warhol Foundation donation of the original 16mm film elements, and the transfer to digital by the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, with the retention of the original sixteen frames per second running speeds of the earliest silent works, the films are making a world tour in select museums and cinematheques.

In terms of audacity, this is the most provocative of all the “filmed canvases” in the early Warhol filmmaking oeuvre, presented as a slap in the face to 1960’s censorship. As a pure example of minimalist selective view, it leaves much to the imagination, and concentrates on “subplot” (facial expressions), rather than “main action”.
