Danny Williams: Factory Films
In 1966 Danny Williams disappeared. He was Andy Warholâs lover, a filmmaker and the designer of the Velvet Underground Exploding Plastic Inevitable lightshow. Almost 40 years later, his niece Esther B. Robinson found 20 short films Williams made during the year before he vanished. Her documentary inquiry into his disappearance, A Walk into the Sea: Danny Williams and The Warhol Factory, has screened all over the world, won the coveted Teddy Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, and was released theatrically in 2008 by ArtHouse Pictures.
Danny Williamsâ extraordinary intimate experimental portraits of the Warhol Factory bring us into that iconic moment with a tenderness and shimmering beauty that stand in fascinating contrast to Warholâs own films made at the time. Lost for 40 years, these luminous documents are now finally available to be screened.
Three of Danny Williamsâ intimate experimental portraits of the 60âs Warhol Factory, screened with an immersive live score by T. Griffin and Catherine McRae from The Quavers.
