Between 1964 to 1966, Andy Warhol shot over 500 silent, slow-motion films on 16mm black-and-white portraits depicting the lives of popular individuals who frequented the factory, including Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Rufus Collins, Edie Sedgwick, Allen Ginsberg and Nico. Warhol’s films were motivated by his fascination with individuals and his desire to capture the actual experience of living.
Ann Buchanan was not a regular Warhol superstar, but was connected to the art world through poetry. Ann follows Warhol’s instructions throughout the entire screen test, as she stares directly at the camera without blinking, until tears begin to fall first from her left eye, and then from her right eye. This screen test is also referred to as “Ann B, The Girl Who Cried a Tear”.
Andy Warhol, Screen Test: Ann Buchanan, 1964, 16mm film, black and white, silent, 4 minutes at 16 frames per second.
