Ric Burns on Andy Warhol Part I by Mitch E. Perry
Tonight and tomorrow night PBS will air on the program Ã¢â¬ÅAmerican MastersÃ¢â¬?a 2 part film on Andy Warhol.
The film , called Ã¢â¬ÅAndy Warhol:A Documentary filmÃ¢â¬?, runs 2 hours on both nights, and is directed by Ric Burns. Burns has had previous success with his biographical documentaries about the playwright Eugene OÃ¢â¬â¢Neill and the photographer Ansel Adams.
In the first of a 2 part interview, WMNF spoke with Ric Burns earlier this week. We asked him if part of what he attempted to do in the film is to make Warhol a less complex figure than what is known about his public persona ?(roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â¬?unpack itself in a powerful wayÃ¢â¬?)
ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s filmmaker Ric Burns. The first part of his documentary on pop artist Andy Warhol airs tonight on PBS. That will be locally on WEDU , beginning at 9PM. WeÃ¢â¬â¢ll hear more from Ric Burns on tomorrow nightÃ¢â¬â¢s broadcast.comments powered by Disqus
