January 30 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Warhol + Tavel / Tavel + Warhol:
The Life of Juanita Castro (1965) & Screen Test #2 (1965)

Two collaborations between filmmaker Andy Warhol and Theatre of the Ridiculous playwright Ronald Tavel, who, for both films here, wrote the scenarios and plays the on-screen director.

In The Life of Juanita Castro (66min., 1965), Tavel coaxes performances for an adaptation of a Life magazine article by Fidel Castro’s sister titled “My Brother Is a Tyrant, and He Must Go.” With filmmaker Marie Menken as Juanita Castro.

In Screen Test #2 ( 66min., 1965), Tavel taunts drag superstar Mario Montez as they audition for the part of Esmeralda in a would-be production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
