ANDY WARHOL FILM FESTIVAL

19 apr 2019 kl. 19:00 - 23:00

Husets Biograf, Rådhusstræde 14, 1466 København

Paul Morrissey, Andy Warhol’s “in house” film director, created some of the most compelling underground films from the early 70s, and tonight we are proud to screen two of them – both starring Warhol’s most famous acting discovery: Joe Dallesandro. Strange, preserve and often shocking in very different ways, they represent the American underground at its most pioneering. You will never forget it. (ticket price allows you admission to BOTH films!)(Contact our house manager, jack.stevenson@mail.dk if you have any questions. And remember if you purchase tickets and cannot attend it is you responsibility to give or sell them further and Husets Bio cannot provide refunds)

19.00 =“TRASH”, 1970, 110 min., Directed by Paul Morrissey, presented by Andy Warhol /  The story of Joe [Dallesandro] and his lover-protector, Holly [Woodlawn], who is something to behold, a comic book Mother Courage who fancies herself as gutter version Marlene Dietrich. Joe and Holly try to make a go of things in their Lower East Side basement, from which Holly goes forth from time to time to cruise the Fillmore East and to scavenge garbage cans, while Joe search for his next fix ... “Trash” is true-blue movie-making, funny and vivid.--Vincent Canby, The New York Times.

21.30 = “ANDY WARHOL’S FRANKENSTEIN,” 1973, 95 min., / In 1973 Warhol and Paul Morrissey created  ‘Frankenstein,´ a violent, sexually daring version of the nineteenth-century classic novel. In 1968 Warhol had been shot and critically injured and the extensive surgery he required left him badly scarred. In 'Frankenstein', with its graphic shots of scarred, ripped and disfigured bodies, Warhol can be seen as confronting the mutilation of his own body (see famous disturbing photograph of him showing his scars), but it’s much more – a wildly entertaining, joyously perverse and outrageous send-up of life, death and desire. A major work of underground cinema screened on an excellent 35mm print. An unforgettable experience you will talk about for weeks.
