Warhol Goes Boom

dir. Matt Schulte (80 mins., Interactive-Experimental)

This event is free of charge.

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, silent black and white 16mm film shots of New York scene makers, Portland filmmaker Matt Schulte chose to create a version using local names with a bit of notoriety of their own.  These include legendary dancer Fred Nemo, Portlandia producer David Cress, local actress Sharae Foxie, founder of Cavity Search Records Denny Swofford, and many more. This special event will feature Schulte projecting his own screen tests while creating a live ‘ambient’ score using microphones placed around the theater. With a nod to one of the great artists of the 20th century, this event combines the not-so-distant past with the current specter of Time Based Art. (80 mins.)

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
