Velvet Underground and Nico Double Feature! The first of these fly-on-the-wall documentaries captures the alternative rock quartet, plus chanteuse Nico, rehearsing at Andy Warhol’s Factory. The second was shot at a chaotic party, where the band members have their fortunes told by a tarot card reader.

Both films will include short breaks for reel changes.
This show is in the Spielberg Theatre.

THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO
1966, MoMA, 70 min, USA, Dir: Andy Warhol
Subtitled “A Symphony of Sound,” this film captures the alternative rock quartet, plus chanteuse Nico, rehearsing together at Andy Warhol’s Factory. Consisting of one long, improvised jam (which gets stopped by New York City cops, presumably because of noise complaints), the film pulsates with wild zooms and kinetic camerawork courtesy of Paul Morrissey.

THE VELVET UNDERGROUND TAROT CARDS
1966, MoMA, 65 min, USA, Dir: Andy Warhol
What costume shall the poor girl wear? At tonight’s party, members of the Velvet Underground and Nico amuse themselves by taking turns with a tarot card reader (who is continually interrupted by the chaos of the festivities). Shot with the kinetic zooming and panning seen in Warhol’s SYMPHONY OF SOUND, this film was created to project during the Velvets’ Exploding Plastic Inevitable performances.

Screening format: 16mm
