ANNIVERSARY PRESENT

Super 35mm — 8 min Short Film

Written and Directed by Doug Karr

A black comedy delving into the volatile emotionality of newlyweds. The film begins with a blissful wedding, but the young couple’s union explodes when a sudden fit of jealousy unhinges Sandra and Lonnie’s world. Generosity leads to spiteful reprisals as a metal-crushing, fire-spewing crescendo shows that mayhem can be an integral element in the high stakes of true love. Finished as a 5.1 surround sound anamorphic theatrical print, Anniversary Present is a frenetically paced, quixotic comedy.

Starring David Alpay & Liane Balaban

Commissioned by Bravo! Network

High in Colorado: Der Cannabis-Goldrausch

a report in German

Die Stadt Denver liegt genau eine Meile über dem Meeresspiegel und nennt sich deshalb "Mile High City". Seit Anfang des Jahres ist Denver allerdings auch in anderer Hinsicht "high" - denn der Bundesstaat Colorado hat den Verkauf von Marihuana legalisiert. Kifferbuden, Hanfplantagen und Headshops schießen seitdem aus dem Boden. Ein Drogen-Goldrausch im sonst so prüden Amerika.

Andy Warhol eating a hamburger

a documentary in no language

Actually it's a whopper from Burger King. And some Heinz Tomato Ketchup. Yes the original. And finally in slightly better resolution and quality. A classic ASMR trigger scene, so if you got ASMR you might wanna bookmark this video for a good time.

Because of the many comments here i feel i should add additional info about this video.

It is from danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth, the scene appears in his art movie "66 scenes from america" which was filmed in 1981.

Jorgen Leth did not know Warhol, but he was a bit obsessed with him so he definitely wanted to have him in his movie. Friends told Leth that he "should forget about it" and that he could never even approach Warhol.

Anyways - Leth was stubborn so when he came to New York for his movie he simply went to the "factory", the building Warhol had rented to work at and despite all other claims simply managed to get to Warhol's studio inside where he met Andy Warhol while he was currently working.

Leth just told Warhol about his movie and the idea of having Andy being one of the 66 scenes along with the highly "symbolic" burger. Warhol immediately liked the idea and agreed to the scene. Andy liked the scene as he said because it was such a real scene, something he would like to do.

So Andy Warhol agreed to come for filming a few days later.

Jorgen leth was a bit afraid that Warhol would not come. He had invited him to a photo studio in new York at 14th street/5th avenue that belonged to a friend of him.

Leth had his assistant buy some burgers and directly advised him to buy some in halfway neutral packaging as Leth was afraid that Warhol might reject some brands (Warhol always had an obsession with some of his favorite brands).

So Andy Warhol finally did arrive at the studio, of course along with his bodyguards, and when he saw the selection of burgers the assistant had brought he asked "Where is the McDonald's?" and Leth - slightly in panic - was immediately like "I thought you would maybe not like to identify... " and Warhol answered "no that is the most beautiful". Leth offered to let his assistant quickly run to McDonald's but Warhol refused like "No, never mind, I will take the Burger King."

Directing the video was pretty simple. Leth said to him: "You simply have to eat this hamburger. And then after you finished, you have to eat it, after you finish you should just tell the camera, to the camera, my name is Andy Warhol, I have just eaten a hamburger. "

Leth was worried during the taking as he forgot to give Warhol a glass of water and the bottle of ketchup was brand new, so it was hard to get it out. But being a real warhol there was only one take, one try, so Warhol pulled it through in just one take, roughly 5 minutes. But Leth liked the scene and how it came out, so that is why today you can see it here.

The original movie "66 Scenes from america" is rather hard to get, but it is included in a Jorgen Leth collection you can buy on amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/J%C3%B8rgen-Leth-Collection-12-18-menneske/dp/B005PSGQ0A

And another comment from me about "Why Coca Cola, Campbell's Tomato Soup and why a whopper from burger king?"

I'll answer that with a quote from Andy Warhol:

"What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it. "

This is actually an interesting piece of art. I call it "art" because that is my personal feeling. Some modern art is merely much more than a bucket of paint thrown against a canvas to me, so i guess if that counts why should Andy not count as art in this vid? But yeah it's questionable if it is really art or just Andy eating a burger. I guess maybe that's why he liked the idea, just like coke or Campbell's tomato soup - something everyone could have, no matter how much money he had.

roentgen [ENG SUB]

a narrative film in German

24 MIN / COL / S16 MM (35 MM BLOW UP) / DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 / GERMAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

FEAT.: FELIX KRAMER; SANDRA HÜLLER; KNUT BERGER; CHRISTOPH TOMANEK; DOMINIK LINDHORST; SOPHIE CONRAD; HELMUT RÜHL

SYNOPSIS: "A dark costume drama set around the dawning of the X-ray machine. Young doctor Georg believes that the newly invented apparatus can cure anything. His medical quest estranges him from his wife Charlotte. To counter the growing distance between them Charlotte puts herself completely behind her husband’s cause. Meticulous attention is paid to detail in this period piece. As every element breathes the grim expectation of horrible consequences, the story inevitably spirals out of control."
