Edie Sedgwick Film Retrospective Hosted by NY's Museum of Moving Image

By Indiewire | Indiewire March 14, 2007 at 12:06PM

New York's Museum of the Moving Image will host a retrospective entitled, "The Real Edie Sedgwick" from March 31 through April 8, 2007, offering all of Sedgwick's rarely seen films directed by Andy Warhol, including rare double-projector screenings of the films "Outer and Inner Space" and "Lupe." In all of the Warhol films, the camera runs continuously, capturing Sedgwick on her own, or hanging out with such members of the Warhol crowd as Gerard Malanga, Chuck Wein, and Ondine. The films are very loosely scripted, but are basically slices of life made during the heyday of the Warhol Factory scene. Among the Warhol films to be shown are "Beauty #2," "Space," "Afternoon," "Restaurant," and "Kitchen." The sixteen-film retrospective also includes the U.S. premiere of footage of Sedgwick shot by documentary filmmaker Richard Leacock for a production of the opera "Lulu," and the feature documentary "Ciao! Manhattan," which was made shortly before Sedgwick died at the age of 28. Sedgwick was portrayed by Siena Miller in the recently released biopic "Factory Girl." [Brian Brooks]
