THE VELVET UNDERGROUND

THE VELVET UNDERGROUND
10/24/21 – 11/4/21

The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of music, cementing its place as one of rock ’n’ roll’s most revered bands. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Todd Haynes, “The Velvet Underground” shows just how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture. The film features in-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band’s creative ethos: “how to be elegant and how to be brutal.”
Dir: Todd Haynes / 2021 / US / 120 min

“This is a great documentary about people who are serious about music and serious also about art, and what it means to live as an artist.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

“See it in a theater with good audio, and you will actually vibrate when ‘Heroin’ kicks in.” – Ben Kenigsberg, RogerEbert.com

“Haynes, whose 1988 Velvet Goldmine skirted around some of these characters in a fictional way, does the art and the time, the people and the places, immersive justice.” – Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
