VELVET UNDERGROUND Documentary… Coming Soon

17 February 2021


What: In-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never before seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol
films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band’s creative ethos: “how to be elegant and how to be brutal.”

Director: Moviemaker Todd Haynes who already made some music movies in the past, like Velvet Goldmine (about glam rock) and I’m Not There (about Bob Dylan)

“Because although there’s very little traditional footage of them playing like you’d see in other rock docs, what you have is the exquisite Andy Warhol films that they played a part in, that he often shot in order to project them on the stage over them while they performed. And so, it really uses the language of those films. It’s just stuffed with the most gorgeous experimental film and photography, and what I hope is that it will take the audience back to that time and also let you hear the music in that context and hear it anew,” said Haynes in a statement.

Release: This summer via Apple TV+
