Edie Sedgwick ConVersation w/ Andy Warhol

More on my work:
The introduction of this News audio speaks about Andy Warhols style of Film making & Edie Sedgwick’s method of Non-acting. Edie Sedgwick & Andy Warhol have a conversation about filming the next day with Ondine & Don Don (Donald Lyons). I’ve added all the clips and photos for the audio. Later you hear how they are on the streets of New York in front of the factory , then they arrive at a Cafeteria. Edie & Andy comment on the hour that they will show up & how Edie is always Late…..Edie asks Andy for Gravy on her noodles, Warhol asks the waitress for Gravy on the Noodles for Edie..Edie laughs.
