“One of Warhol’s very best – and most painterly – films, more interesting for what it does with crowded space than for the S & M.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum, The Chicago Reader

Six years before Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, Warhol paid $3,000 for the rights to Anthony Burgess’ novel. Ronald Tavel loosely adapted the story into this exploration of cultural incompatibility in which Factory regulars enact the rehabilitation of a young hoodlum by leather-clad S & M practitioners. Preceded by a selection of Screen Tests (Warhol, 1964-66). Introduced by Film/Media Studies Lecturer Ken Eisenstein. A reception will follow the screening at the Downtown Gallery (416 Market Street).

Friday, April 4, 2p.m.

Film Screening
Campus Theatre, 413 Market St., Lewisburg

The Life of Juanita Castro
Andy Warhol, 1965, 16mm, U.S., 66 min.
One of Warhol’s first films to use sound is an elaborately scripted satire about Latin American politics. The cast, representing the family of Fidel Castro, sit in chairs as if grouped for a family portrait, repeating lines fed them from the back row. Playing with John and Ivy (Warhol, 1965, 35 min.), a domestic portrait of cinematographer John Palmer and fashion model Ivy Nicholson.
