The Andy Warhol Museum will release, for the first time, the artist’s 1968 film San Diego Surf. It was filmed in color with two cameras–operated by Warhol and Paul Morrisey–in La Jolla, Calif., but the editing long remained unfinished.
More, from ArtDaily:
In 1995-96, the Andy Warhol Foundation commissioned Paul Morrissey, under the supervision of Foundation curator Dara Meyers-Kingsley, to complete the editing, based on existing notes and the rough cut. One of the last films in which Warhol had direct involvement, San Diego Surf was the first time Warhol had made a movie in California since the early Tarzan and Jane Regained, Sort of…in 1963. The month after San Diego Surf filming was completed, Warhol was shot by Valerie Solanas, which virtually ended his work behind the movie camera.
