The four hour epic, Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film will be shown twice daily at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm. The film includes interviews with the usual smattering of Warhol cohorts and curator/art writer Donna De Salvo - previously the senior curator at the Tate Modern in London and now the chief curator for the Whitney Museum who has written extensively on Andy Warhol in the past, including "God is in the Details: The Prints of Andy Warhol" which appeared in the Andy Warhol Prints catalogue raisonné. She was also responsible for the excellent exhibition catalogue of Warhol's early commercial work - Success in a job in New York... The Early Art and Business of Andy Warhol.
The film also features music by Laurie Anderson and the words of Warhol interpreted by Jeff Koons.
