Description

In one of Warhol’s funniest films, a playwright taunts a group of actors into improvising a ridiculous yet politically meaningful meditation on Fidel Castro and his family. The cast sit in chairs as if grouped for a family portrait, repeating lines fed them from the back row. One of the first Warhol films to use sound and erratic camera movements, it was scripted by avant garde writer Ronald Tavel and stars Marie Menken and Elektrah. (1965, 70 min, 16mm)
