13 Most Beautiful... Songs For Andy Warhol's Screen Tests Film Poster

Synopsis

Between 1964 and 1966, artist and cultural icon Andy Warhol shot nearly 500 screen tests of visitors to his studio The Factory - some of them famous, some anonymous. His subjects were captured in black and white on 100-foot rolls of film, without sound. The resulting two-and-a-half-minute film reels were then screened in slow motion, resulting in a collection of four-minute pieces, 13 of which are included here. The screen tests included in this collection feature Paul America, Susan Bottomly, Ann Buchanan, Freddy Herko, Jane Holzer, Dennis Hopper, Billy Name, Nico, Richard Rheem, Lou Reed, Edie Sedgwick, Ingrid Superstar and Mary Woronov. The films are accompanied by a soundtrack performed by Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips.
