Two New Andy Warhol Preservations!

Two new prints of long-unseen Andy Warhol films preserved with a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation by The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh. TIGER MORSE is a 33 minute amphetamine-fuled monologue by the titular fashion designer and disco ball obsessive. The Andy Warhol Film Project writes: "Warhol’s late camera work is also highlighted: the film contains many interruptive pans, rapid strobe cuts, and focus pulls, and is shot on jewel-like Ektachrome reversal stock. The footage was later inserted as Reel 14 into Warhol’s epic 25-hour film **** (Four Stars).” Filmed in early 1964, during the Factory's silver paint job, JILL JOHNSTON DANCING is composed of 7x 100ft rolls of 16mm film that Warhol shot of dancer and Village Voice critic Johnson dancing around the Factory.
