Chelsea Girls (1966; 204” in double screen) an expanded cinema showcase for many of Warhol’s superstars: Nico, Ondine, Brigid Berlin, Mario Montez, Eric Emerson, Gerard Malanga, Mary Woronov, Ingrid Superstar, Marie Menken, Ed Hood, and Susan Bottomly (aka International Velvet). Chelsea Girls is a 1966 experimental underground film directed by Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey. The film was Warhol's first major commercial success after a long line of avant-garde art films (both feature length and short). It was shot at the Hotel Chelsea and other locations in New York City, and follows the lives of several of the young women who live there, and stars many of Warhol's superstars.
Andy Warhol turned the world of fine art on its head. He blurred the distinction between 'high' and 'low' culture in his films as well as his art. The Pollock Theater’s Andy Warhol series includes four evenings of Warhol’s avant garde films that highlight the phases of his filmmaking career.
