Cinematheque: Warhol's FACE & THE VELVET UNDERGROUND IN BOSTON
San Francisco Cinematheque presents a special benefit event featuring two very rare and recently preserved films by Andy Warhol–FACE, starring socialite superstar Edie Sedgwick, and THE VELVET UNDERGROUND IN BOSTON, a dazzling document of the band on tour in 1967. The evening begins with a pre-screening reception, featuring music and drinks (courtesy of the Ninkasi Brewing Company) and DJ Carlstone Rock!

Uncovered after forty years, the restored FACE is a remarkable contribution to Warhol's oeuvre of films. Warhol's mastery of the close-up reveals and revels in Edie Sedgwick's uncanny cinematic presence. THE VELVET UNDERGROUND IN BOSTON, filmed during a performance at the Boston Tea Party, is a rare and remarkable account of the influential rock band. Utilizing a variety of camera techniques and in-camera editing, Warhol captures the pulsating and dazzling energies of the band and the time–a must see for Velvet Underground and Warhol fans alike!

Face and The Velvet Underground in Boston were preserved through the National Film Preservation Foundation's Avant-Garde Masters Grant program funded by The Film Foundation.
