Free Screening: Andy Warhol: Made in China (1989)
A rare opportunity to see this fascinating 1989 documentary, which finds filmmaker Lee Caplin trailing Andy Warhol during his travels through China in 1982, from Hong Kong’s glitter to the mystique of Peking’s Forbidden City. The visit is orchestrated as a cultural experiment by young Chinese millionaire Alfred Siu to see if Warhol’s cult of celebrity will extend beyond Western society. Will China afford him fifteen minutes of fame?
