The International Anthony Burgess Foundation is delighted to screen Andy Warhol’s 1956 version of A Clockwork Orange, ‘Vinyl’, in collaboration with University College London and the UCL/AHRC Remembering 1960s Cinema-going project.
Before the screening, UCL’s Dr Patrick Glen will give a short talk on counter-cultural and underground cinema going in the 1960s. After the film has finished, he will invite those who remember the 1960s to share their reminiscences.
IMDB describes the film as ‘Warhol’s strange interpretation of “A Clockwork Orange.” Includes Gerard Malanga dancing to the Martha and the Vandellas classic “Nowhere to Run” and being tortured by professional sadists.’ Eagle-eyed viewers will notice an appearance by Edie Sedgwick.
The ‘Remembering 1960s British Cinema-going‘ project is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council dedicated to sharing research which collected memories of almost 1,000 people of ‘going to the pictures’ half a century ago.
This screening and talk is free, and there is no need to book.
