Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD to screen Andy Warhol San Diego Surf

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) is to screen Andy Warhol filmed San Diego Surf on the shores of La Jolla, on Saturday, March 16 at 5:30 PM.

Andy Warhol produced more than 4,000 reels of film between 1963 and 1971, when the works were withdrawn from circulation.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. San Diego Surf was filmed in La Jolla in May 1968. Filmed in color on 16mm with two cameras, manned by Andy Warhol and 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.

One of the last films in which Warhol had direct involvement, San Diego Surf is being released by The Andy Warhol Museum, who holds all the copyrights to this film which has never before been publicly shown.
