Synopsis

A pivotal figure in the New American Cinema, Markopoulos' shimmering, lyrical, complex films, explore memory, desire and the nature of creativity. This loose interpretation of Prometheus Bound takes the mythology surrounding New York's underground superstars to another level, with Andy Warhol as Poseidon on an Exercycle, Taylor Mead a Demon unbound, and Jack Smith a bohemian Orpheus relaxing at home with Eurydice.
