Warhol California Surf Film Released After 45 Years In The Vault


San Diego Surf, the last remaining unreleased Warhol movie which was filmed in La Jolla Calf, in May 1968 has resurfaced. It was shot in color on 16mm with two cameras, manned by Andy Warhol and the director Paul Morrissey. The film features superstars Viva, Taylor Mead, Louis Waldon, Joe Dallesandro, Tom Hompertz, Ingrid Superstar, Eric Emerson, Nawana Davis, and others. Its loose narrative concerns an unhappily married couple with a baby who rent their beach house to a group of surfers. Warhol produced more than 4,000 reels of film between 1963 and 1971, when the works were withdrawn from circulation. In the early 1980s a project began to preserve and re-release his films.
