Andy Warhol's Silver Screen: Rarities & Restorations

Viva and Taylor Mead play a bourgeois couple lusting after buff surfer dudes in one of Warhol’s last films. San Diego Surf was never finished and sat in a vault for 40 years. Just a month after filming it, Warhol was shot by Valerie Solanas, which virtually ended his work behind the movie camera. The Andy Warhol Foundation commissioned longtime Warhol collaborator Paul Morrissey to complete the editing, based on existing notes and the rough cut. Also starring Joe Dallesandro and Ingrid Superstar. (1968, 90 min, 16mm)
