ANDY'S CAKE

Stories of Andy Warhols Factory

 

Directed by: Otto Mühl and Terese Schulmeister

 

Concept: Otto Mühl

 

The film “Andy´s Cake” is an opulent secession of scenes taken from Andy Warhol´s Factory in which different artists of the international artscene play Andy´s antagonists: for example Maria Lassnig as Valery Solanis who nearly successfully attempts to kill Andy, or Otto Muehl as Julia Warhola, who claims to be the better painter, Oswald Oberhuber as Jackson Pollock and Nam June Paik as priest who gives the last sacrament to Andy just before he knocks at the door of the castle in Princes Village where Hermann Nitsch helps to fulfill his greatest wish: to go down in an orgy of blood and chaos.
