USA, United Kingdom, Documentary, 1990, 58′

A concert film, from 1990, now in a restored version. Ed Lachman captured, three years after Andy Warhol’s death, a stage performance by Lou Reed and John Cale of the album they wrote together in honor of their mentor — Drella, a combination of Dracula and Cinderella, which was a nickname used by his crowd. The songs on the album talk about his perspective, his life and the relationship between the two musicians and Warhol himself.
