I'm In Pittsburgh and It's Raining

Saturday 26th September / 7PM @ The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

Anecdotally, Andy Warhol once asked the Velvet Underground that the record bearing his name be inscribed with a skip during the song “I’ll be Your Mirror." Listeners, faced with the endless repetition of that particular lyric, would be forced to rouse themselves and manually drive the needle onward. The group declined this request. I'm in Pittsburgh and It's Raining is an experimental portrait of a body double which honours Warhol’s concept in its depiction of both the act and the idea of being caught in a reflexive moment.

 

Screening as part of the Inntravel Short Film Awards. Our Awards programme is central to the Festival and represents some of the most exciting and ambitious contemporary filmmakers working today. An international jury, featuring filmmakers Beatrice Gibson and Salomé Lamas alongside curator Fatos Üstek, will present Inntravel’s prestigious award following the screening.
