A Short Film About Andy Warhol

James Lyons

Surreal and simply framed, A Short Film About Andy Warhol runs six minutes, and follows the artist home after an imagined night on the town. He wakes, realizes his youth has left him and contemplates mysterious scars on his body and a woman’s necklace that he wears hidden beneath his clothing. The film stars director Gus Van Sant and is shot by Ed Lachman. The sound score will be quiet and environmental, accentuating the overall silence of the film. An award-winning editor of many directors’ features and short films, this is Lyons’ first film as a director.
