FILM: Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film

Monday, Jan. 12



Kicking off today, the Main Library presents a special showing of filmmaker Ric Burns' Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film. The four-hour-long documentary (to be shown in two-parts, with a screening of Part II on Jan. 19, 7 p.m.) made its debut in 2006 with a two-week run in New York City at Film Forum. It has also been featured on PBS as part of the American Masters series. In the film, narrated by Laurie Anderson, Burns documents historical events crucial to the acclaimed pop artist's life and conducts interviews with art dealers and artists. However, Burns' aim is not only to paint a picture of Warhol's life, but to convey to viewers just why Warhol is considered to many, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Free. 7 p.m. Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, 310 N. Tryon St. 704-416-0100.
