Andy Warhol & Paul Morrissey - April, 1969
On June 3, 1968, Andy Warhol was shot by Valerie Solanas. He was pronounced clinically dead, but surgeons at Columbus Hospital were able to revive him. It's now almost a year later. Solanas is in custody awaiting sentencing, and Warhol has just undergone a follow-up surgery. They discuss how life at The Factory has been slow since the shooting. Warhol has created little work since filming Lonesome Cowboys and Blue Movie with longtime film collaborator Paul Morrissey, who joins Warhol for this interview. They talk about filmmaking on the cheap, the Valerie Solanas shooting, and Warhol’s new focus on television.
