Visit Bunjil Place for an exclusive, outdoor screening of Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests.
Between 1964 and 1966 Warhol shot approximately 500 rolls of film of which mostly were portraits of acquaintances, friends and celebrities visiting his iconic studio The Factory. Shot with a stationary Bolex 16mm camera the subjects were asked to simply sit in front of the camera for a 3-minute timeframe. The subject and camera remained almost motionless creating a seemingly ‘living portrait’.
In 2010 American musicians Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips were commissioned by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to compose music to accompany 13 selected films from the series. Please join us for the screening of this mesmerising compilation.
Following on we will present ‘screen tests’ from our community call out with live music performance by Video Video. To cap off the night with Bunjil Place, Melbourne International Film Festival presents Lawrence Johnston’s NEON.
