Vinyl (1965). In 16 mm, 66 min.
In conjunction with love fear pleasure lust pain glamour death—Andy Warhol Media Works and in honor of Gay Pride Month, SAM Films highlights a selection of early films made by Andy Warhol.
Warhol bought the rights to Anthony Burgess’s novel A Clockwork Orange six years before Stanley Kubrick made his Clockwork. Warhol’s film features Factory star Gerard Melanga as a juvenile delinquent who undergoes "reprogramming" by the welfare state, a process that reads as a metaphor for trying to convert gays into straights. Edie Sedgwick, added to a tableau for compositional balance, steals the movie.
Prices above are for entire film series. Series tickets may be purchased at the Ticketing Desk at any of SAM's three sites, or over the phone with a credit card by calling the SAM Box Office at 206.654.3121.
