The Velvet Underground and Nico is a real symphony of sound and vision and a unique film document of a jam-session by the Velvets in The Factory. Warhol's gaze from behind the camera is not just fixed on the musicians; his camera 'plays' along, panning and zooming to the beat of the music. The result is a genuine psychedelic viewing experience to the Velvet Underground waves of rock 'n roll.îAndy Warhol was born as Andrew Warhola, son of Czech immi¡grants, in 1927 in Cleveland. His film work is still one of the most important manifestations of Pop Art, of which he was high priest. Well-known films produced by Warhol and directed by Paul Morrissey are Flesh (1968), Trash (1970), Heat (1972) and Blood for Dracula (1973). Later Warhol experimented a lot with video. Warhol died in 1987.
