Pop Resurrection

A Warhol Weekend

San Francisco Art Institute

The Cinematheque once again offers West Coast premieres of recent restorations from the Whitney Museum’s Andy Warhol Film Project for Easter Weekend. On Saturday April 3: Outer and Inner Space (1965, 33 minutes, double screen projection) pits side-by-side versions of Edie Sedgwick reacting to herself on a TV monitor-one of the earliest (and prescient) uses of video art; Hedy (1965, 66 minutes) has music by John Cale and Lou Reed and stars Mario Montez, Ingrid Superstar, Gerard Malanga, Mary Woronov and Jack Smith. On Sunday, April 4: Screen Tests “Reel J” (1964-66, 10 portraits, 3 minutes each) includes portraits of Jane Holtzer, Jonas Mekas, Paul Morrissey, John Ashbery and others. Horse (1965, 99 minutes), one of the best Ronald Tavel/Warhol collaborations, is “a genuine Western about celibate, asexual and homosexual cowboys in love with their horses.” (RT)
