Kadumine merre: Danny Williams ja Warhol Factory /
A Walk into the Sea: Danny Williams & the Warhol Factory
Re˛. Esther B. Robinson, Suurbritannia 2007, 90’

Inglise keeles
Sissejuhatus Eha Komissarov



Andy Warhol ja tema Factory on siiani ihaldatud materjaliks kunsti- ja filmimaailmas. Käesolev dokumentaal läheneb teemale ebaharilikust positsioonist ning re˛issöör otsib vastust hoopiski Danny Williamsi saladuslikule kadumisele 1966. aastal. Tänaseks praktiliselt tundmatu andekas noor filmitegija Danny Williams oli Andy Warholi armuke ja elukaaslane, seotud Velvet Undergroundiga, olles muu hulgas etenduse „Exploding Plastic Inevitable‿ (1966) valguskujunduse autor.

Filmis rullub lahti tükike Factory ajalugu läbi kahekümne Warholi pärandist leitud 16-mm must-valge eksperimentaalfilmi – kus saavad mainitud Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgeick, Paul Morrissey, Brigid Berlin, Billy Name jne – , mille autorlus on tänaseks kinnistatud Danny Williamsile. Mis siis ikkagi katkestas lootustandva filmimehe ja valguskunstniku loomingu ning miks on Danny Williams ja ta looming jäänud ajaloohämarustesse?

The documentary is director Esther Robinson’s personal inquiry into the truth behind her Uncle Danny Williams’ mysterious 1966 disappearance. Virtually unknown today, Danny was Andy Warhol’s lover, and a promising young filmmaker. The discovery of 20 never-before-seen films William’s made during his time at the Factory – and whose many subjects include Andy Warhol, Edie Sedgwick, Paul Morrissey, Brigid Berlin, Billy Name and what may be the earliest known footage of the Velvet Underground – reveals a luminous talent and a stark gap in the historical record. Combined with Robinson’s intimate interviews of surviving Factory members, the film gets beyond the icons and quietly dismantles the Warhol myth-making machine, allowing a deeper examination of the human fragility on which Andy Warhol’s empire was built.

Awards: Berlin Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Chicago Film Festival
